Church Barbecue for Kindu

Next Saturday 27 is a church barbecue in the Rectory garden from 1.00 – 3.00 pm.  We will be serving top quality burgers cooked by Niall Davitt. There is no charge, thanks to a generous parishioner who is underwriting the cost. Fun for all the family plus a promise auction. This is all to raise money for the forthcoming parish team visit to Kindu.


Can you help?

  • Please come and bring someone else with you
  • Could you offer a promise (ie some act of service) that can be auctioned on Saturday? Some examples are washing 1 car, gardening for 2 hours, dog-walking once, cooking a meal for a family etc. Email your lot to admin@calry.ie
  • Do you have a gas barbecue we could use?
