St Catherine's Parish Ceilidh 21-06-02.
Please accept the heartfelt thanks of the parishioners of St Catherine's for the wonderful entertainment you provided for us on Friday evening.As the culmination to the celebration of Father Mike's silver jubilee I can honestly say that the event could not have been bettered,and in large part that is down to yourselves.
There is a magical quality that comes with a good ceilidh.Through the combination of dancing,music and most of all the laughter,people come together in the most wonderful way.You are well named as St Thomas Of Aquin's Community Ceilidh Band, because I am sure you help strengthen the links in the communities for whom you play.
You may like to know that we raised a total of almost £750 from Friday.This was way beyond our expectations and I am sure it will be of great help to Fr.Eugene and Fr John when they return to Romania.We will be sure to let you know how they are doing.
Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band.Good luck with the remaining events this term,and enjoy what little break you can manage this summer.It has been well earned.
