A CUPPA!

I would like to acknowledge the support of all those who attend the cards in Adamstown every week. Most are not from the Parish but they have all been indeed great benefactors of the Parish.

I am grateful to all those who kindly provide tea and refreshments to the players, these too are the best of benefactors by being ministers of hospitality. Our Lord said

even a cup of water will have its reward”. A special word of thanks to Liam Whelan, who facilitates the card each week and to Terry & Matt who also help out.

Many thanks - Fr. Nolan.
