five days and nights from Belfast. The cost is £585.

PARISH BINGO - The
Sunday night bingo had long been a part of the social
fabric of parish life. Many look forward to it and
miss being there. The recent severe weather has placed
a great strain on the attendance, which is very understandable.
The Bingo has now resumed and it is hoped that a small
increase in attendance will endure and that it continues
for years to come. A word of special thanks to the
dedicated organizers, who are so faithful to the running
of the Bingo.

As St Matthew’s Gospel is to be used

7, 14, 21 and 28 February. Cost £30 (payable
