Castlebar meeting will establish local branch of new grandparents organisation

On behalf of:                                  National Grandparents Pilgrimage
Date:                                              October 27th, 2009
Available for interview:                   Catherine Wiley, Founder – details below

Grandparents in Castlebar will tonight (TUESDAY) come together to establish a branch of the newly-formed Catholic Grandparents Association in the town.
This follows an historic meeting in Westport two weeks ago which led to the formation of the first-ever branch of the Association anywhere in Ireland.

The Association, which has grown out of the popular National Grandparents Pilgrimages in Knock Shrine over the last three years, is now beginning the task of building branches around the country.

“The Catholic Grandparents Association seeks to support grandparents in every way it can, and also assist them in their very important role of passing on the faith to their grandchildren,” said Association founder Catherine Wiley, who lives in nearby Murrisk.

“I have been getting a strong feeling of renewed hope from grandparents. They have been fearful about how the faith will be transmitted, but see hope in what is being done now with the Catholic Grandparents Association.”
The Castlebar branch of the Catholic Grandparents Association will be formed at a meeting in the Traveller’s Friend Hotel, Castlebar, tonight, at 7pm. All are welcome.
