ANAM CARA is holding its monthly Parent Evening on Thursday 21st of January 2016 from 7.30-9pm in the Family Centre, Chapel Street, Castlebar, Co. Mayo.
All Anam Cara services are free of charge
to bereaved parents.
Each Wednesday morning at 11 am a Bereavement Support Group meet at the Family Centre, Knock Shrine for an hour.
It’s a place and time to remember and find support when dealing with the loss of a family member.
All are welcome to drop in any week and further information is available from Monica Morley at the Centre on 094-9375320.
On Saturday we came together as a parish community to support those who had been bereaved during the last twelve months.
It was a lovely occasion which was organised by the Pastoral Council. After a lovely Mass led by Fr Denis and the parish choir we adjourned to the Community Rooms for a cup of tea and a chat.
It was an event, although tinged with sadness, which provided comfort and strength to those in attendance.
We attach photos of the sacred space here and a copy of Fr Denis’ homily on the day which may be a further source of comfort to those bereaved parishioners living elsewhere.
