Eucharistic Adoration is now in its 24th year at Mitchelstown Parish Church. Over the years many people have passed on to their Eternal Reward and a number of people have become old and in firm. To ensure the smooth running of the Adoration that goes on 24 hours a day it is now necessary to recruit some new people to ensure that the Adoration will be able to continue without much difficulty to those involved. Many people from outlying parishes have signed up for their weekly hour and it is not just the people of the parish that are currently keeping the rota going.
If you feel you have an hour to spare you should contact Nora Hogan - 025 -24149 or Catherine Hanley 087- 7727496. Adorers are now urgently required for the following hours - Thursday 8.00 am to 9.00 am 7pm to 8pm Friday 8.00 am to 9.00am 10.00 pm to 11.00 pm.
