Call for volunteers: Host Families and Drivers wanted
Newry Parish Mission 5th to 13th December 2015
Twenty young people (aged 18-30) from the Emmanuel School of Mission in Rome will be visiting Newry in December as part of the parish mission. The mission promises to be a new and exciting experience for Newry, with a wide range of activities and events to be held inside and outside of the churches.
Could you provide accommodation for some of these young missionaries? Accommodation will be on a bed and breakfast basis. Lunches and dinners will be provided elsewhere. Ideally, we would like each volunteer home to take two people each. This is a great opportunity to become actively involved in the mission and to get to know the missionaries who come from all over the world.
Could you help the young missionaries to get from A to B?
The missionaries will need help getting to and from their host families each day and to the various events throughout the parish. You don’t need to be available every day, simply let us know which days/times might suit you.Read more...
