The Ceili Mission started in Mitchelstown Parish on November 5 and will run to November 25.

The first two weeks are mainly for schools with the Preached Mission running from 17th to 25th November.

There are up to 30 personnel involved including priests, nuns and lay people. The Mission is offering an opportunity to be refreshed, renewed, encouraged and stimulated in the Catholic faith.

The Ceili, a new name for missioners, is a community of priests, religious and lay people who are drawn together by God to evangelize. They are committed to and work under the authority of the Irish Bishops.

Ceili’s aim is to bring people both as individuals and as communities into a deeper relationship with God and with each other through their programme of Parish and School Missions. The name ‘Ceili’ speaks of companions, togetherness, hope and above all joy. From Monday Nov 19th to Friday Nov 23rd there will be Mass at 7.00 am 10am and 7.30pm each day. On Thursday night there will be a Holy Hour instead of Mass. On Saturday Nov 24 Masses will be 8.30am 10am and 7.30pm
