The parishes of St. John’s, St. Brendan’s and the Spa are delighted to invite you to the first Tralee Area Mission. It is an exciting venture for us, as the three neighbouring parishes will be on Mission during the same week. The mission will be a time for gathering in church after two very difficult years. It will also be an opportunity to reflect on our lives, to reflect on our faith and how we can live as Christians in these times.
The themes of “Dream; Hope; Celebrate” will be at the heart of our week. To dream of a better parish community and a better world; to hope in the future despite the turmoil of life and to celebrate our faith as a parish community. We invite you to join us, in which ever church you wish to attend. It doesn’t matter if you don’t go to church or if you attend each day, this Mission Week is for everyone. We hope you can join us and that you will experience encouragement in the different ceremonies and events.
