Readers and Cleaners: Readers and Cleaners are needed to assist the present group who are doing great work reading at Mass and cleaning the Church weekly in the Holy Trinity Church, Durrow.

The Rota for the cleaners is a couple hours once a week for a month and it reoccurs every four to five months depending on the number of cleaners. The number of cleaners has dropped in the past year and we appeal to anyone who has two hours a week in the morning for a month rota maybe twice a year to contact Angela Drennan or any member of the cleaners to get your name added to the list. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
