Lacken & Valleymount News
2021 Private Members Draw in aid of Valleymount & Lacken Churches.
We will soon begin a new year for the Parish Private members Draw for Valleymount & Lacken.
This fundraiser is vitally important to the smooth running of the parish and it also enables us to continue with maintenance work on both churches. Valleymount Parish is rightfully proud of its two beautiful churches, but they are reaching an age when work will need to be done to ensure good upkeep of the beautiful windows in Valleymount and general maintenance on damp issues in Lacken Church.
I am very grateful to the committee and collectors for your work thus far and I hope you will be able to continue with this important work. May I take this opportunity to thank all the parishioners who continue to support this draw and maintain our buildings for the future generations.
With renewed thanks and every blessing.
Fr Richard Behan PP
