The Irish Cancer Society’s Care to Drive service is currently seeking volunteer drivers to drive local patients to and from their chemotherapy treatments in Cavan General Hospital.  They are looking for volunteers from all over Co. Cavan to pick local patients up at their homes, drive them to the door of the hospital, pick them up again when they are finished their treatment and bring them home.  The service is free to the patient and all drivers expenses are paid.  Telephone Rebecca on 01 2316 642 or email   There are many patients who cannot get to their treatments for a number of reasons:
    1. Patients are living on their own with little or no immediate family support
    2. The patients family is not in the immediate vicinity
    3. The patients family cannot take time off work to bring them to and from the hospital (when the recession really hit, people became afraid of taking time off work)
    4. Patients are elderly and cannot drive (and their spouse cannot drive)
    5. The treatment is too aggressive and the patient has been advised not to drive

Lectio Divina Group  Everyone welcome to come to the Conference Room at the back of the Cathedral every Tuesday beginning Tue 10 Sept after the 10am Mass to study Sunday’s Gospel.
