Drivers wanted: Would you be willing to give a neighbour a lift to Sunday Mass? For most of us getting to Mass on Sunday is not a problem but for some of our parishioners it can be difficult. The Parish Council would like to set up a pool of volunteer drivers to help parishioners, who might otherwise not have the opportunity, to attend Mass in St. Eunan’s Cathedral. They would like to hear from anyone who would be willing to give a lift should someone from your neighbourhood require it. If interested, please forward your name, address and telephone number to the Parochial House. Also please state which Mass you normally attend. It is hoped to match drivers to people requiring lifts in their vicinity so the more volunteer drivers the better.
