Planting a Tree of Hope is intended to show support and to provide a place of comfort for those who have been bereaved by suicide or who are living with mental health issues such as depression.
The Pastoral Council were approached with a request that a Tree of Hope be planted in Shannon Parish and it has been agreed that the tree, a crab tree, be planted next to the statue in Illaunmanagh Cemetery at 4pm on Sunday 2nd November, All Souls Day. Balloons will be then released in honour of those that we are thinking of.
Our thanks to Niall & Noreen Fulham for providing all of the information required and for the hand carved stake for the tree, and also to Noreen Bracken for the suggestion. Visit the Facebook page https://facebook.com//TreesOfHope for further information.
All are welcome.
