THE GRAAN WEEKLY BULLETIN

17th November 2019

Sunday Collection: Came to £1465. The Development collection came to £720. Thank you for your generosity as always. There will be a Development Collection taken up next Sunday 24th .

 

Today is the 33rd Sunday of the Year: The day of the Lord came when Jesus came: it will come again when Jesus returns; it comes today each time grace visits us. The day of the Lord is always a judgement: it exposes wickedness and exalts justice. St. Paul tells us that the proper way to prepare for the last times is to work conscientiously at our daily tasks.

 

The Graan Draw: This is the last weekend to buy tickets for the Car Draw. The Draw will take place at the Dinner Dance in the Killyhevlin Hotel next Friday night at mid-night. If you would like to sell a book of tickets for us, please do; we really do appreciate your help. If you have any tickets in your homes please return them at the beginning of this week because it is difficult to do it all in the last day or two. All our helpers do this voluntarily.

 

At the Dinner Dance Dominic and Barry Kirwan and their band is our entertainment for the night. The Dinner Dance tickets cost £30 each this year and are available at reception. The Dinner Dance tickets would make an ideal Christmas gift for family and friends. The dinner dance is always the highlight of the evening along with the many Raffle and Spots prizes all of which have been kindly donated. If you are coming to the Dinner Dance, we promise to run things on time. You’ll need to be at the hotel not later than 8pm. You can choose your seating then. The dinner will be served at 8.30pm.

 

Spot Prizes: Thanks to everyone who have already donated Spot prizes. Contact us if you have a Spot Prize and we will collect it or if you can leave it in at the front door of the Monastery with your name and address clearly written on it, we will be most grateful. Every spot prize will be given away on the night. Thanks to all our tickets sellers and to Dunnes Stores as always.
