Halloween - A time of Reflection.
Halloween moves us towards November which is the month during which we especially remember those who have died. It is a time of transition towards the more dormant months of winter which is a necessary preparation for the time of regrowth in a few months' time. An evening of reflection on these themes will take place in the Sisters of Mercy Residence at Ard Bhride, Lawn Road, Castlebar on Thursday 30th October starting at 7.30 p.m. All are welcome. Presenters Maura Gallagher R.S.M and Maura Walsh R.S.M.. Further details and booking available through the Family Centre, Chapel St., Castlebar Tel. 094 90 25900.
