Final Rehearsal for the CDYS Choir

Youth Mass
On Saturday evening, in the Church of the Resurrection, CDYS Youth Choir took part in a Youth Mass. The Youth Choir had worked very hard preparing for this Mass and their commitment is to be commended under the guidance of Ms Sarah Finn.

The young people’s involvement really enhanced the Mass and going forward we would love to continue this work. The young people enjoyed a pizza party back in the Mallow Community Youth Centre and were joined by Archdeacon Casey. 

We always need the involvement of our young people, adults, musicians. Anyone interested in being involved in our Church are more than welcome to join.

For further information please contact Bernadette at 086/8031126 or pop into the Mallow Youth Centre.

ACTivate Club

ACTivate Club volunteers receiving the cheque from the Buachaill Dana Motor Cycle Club in CastleConnell Co. Limerick

The ACTivate Club – which is a weekly support group for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and their siblings were delighted to receive a very generous donation last week from the Buachaill Dána Motor Cycle Club from CastleConnell in Co. Limerick.

On the 17th April 2016 the Buachaill Dána MCC held a poker run to raise money for the Activate Club in Mallow and for the Dochas Autism Club in Limerick. There was great excitement for the young people and the volunteers from the club that went to see all the motorbikes and some were even privileged to get to sit on some of the bikes. Last week some of the volunteers travelled to CastleConnell to receive a cheque for €2163.50. This will greatly enhance the activities in the club over the coming year.
