Ceili, who are facilitating the mission, is a community of priests, sisters and lay people. Their aim is to bring individuals and communities closer to God through programmes of Parish and school missions. The name Ceili speaks of companions, togetherness, hope and above all joy.

The missionaries will be hosted in local houses during the two weeks and will be “fed and watered” by a large group of volunteers at St Joseph’s Resource Centre.
Both Fr Gerry Hanly and Fr Donal Morris of St Joseph’s Church, invite parishioners to join the mission adding that it will cover topics and issues that are relevant, real and down to earth. It will, they said, be an opportunity to be refreshed, renewed, encouraged and stimulated in our faith.
