The Social Afternoon held at St Weburgh and St Laurence’s Parish beat all records . A total of £1,725 was raised through the auction, bingo, guess the Irish county and other raffles. The afternoon rolled along to music provided by Ann Mc a parishioner at St Werburgh’s all her life. Fr Burke, Finbarr and his team organised the afternoon at such short notice, yet as usual it ran like a dream. The compassion and generosity of the people of these parishes is truly amazing. They were encouraged by the words of Bishop John Arnold who had recently visited the devastated areas. All in all a remarkable afternoon.
