St Catherine’s Church Restoration Fundraiser – Thank You
A dream Auction took place on the 9th August 2016 in the Standing Stone to raise funds for the restoration of St Catherine’s Church in Fenagh. The Dream Auction was an outstanding success which exceeded everyone’s expectations. This would not have been possible without the huge support from the business community and the public alike.  The St Catherine’s Church Committee would like to say a big thank you to all those who donated items for the auction (over 90 items), gave donations and those who supported the auction on the night. Thanks also to Des Foley who acted as Auctioneer and for helping make the auction such a success, the Standing Stone for the use of their premises on the night, and local media for promoting the Dream Auction. As a result of the success of the event works are proceeding on St Catherine’s church. A very special event will be taking place on Sunday 18th September at 7:30pm when the Harvest Festival Service will take place in the Church. Bishop Ferran Glenfield will be in attendance at the festival. All very welcome. Once again a big thank you to everyone for helping make the fundraiser such a success.
