The most recent event organized for the members of St. Michael’s Women’s Total Abstinence Sodality was a magic lantern lecture by Mr Robert Gibson. He presented a series of splendid views from various European locations. The large drawing rooms of St. Ita’s House could only accommodate half of the eager audience. This situation brings to attention a project that has been hinted at in this column before – the construction of a hall on the spare ground behind the house. Such a hall, in addition to religious activities, would serve as a venue for concerts and other events, fostering a sense of unity among the members of this esteemed Sodality during the evenings. Friends of temperance, regardless of their creed, who have witnessed the impressive work undertaken by Father Cregan and the Committee, are urged to come forward promptly and generously contribute funds for this much-needed addition to St. Ita’s House.
