existing facility in Larne was built in the 1960s.
Now it badly needs to be re-developed.
The Drumalis Community of Cross and Passion Sisters has come to a very
brave decision: to re-build the
Drumalis residential block with new conference facilities at a cost of £4
million. The Cross and Passion
Order is contributing the massive sum of £3 million, which leaves the Drumalis
Community the task of raising the remaining amount, £1 million!
Friends of Drumalis 1000 Club is one of the major initiatives put in
place to help raise the funds for this project.
The target we have set ourselves is to raise £50,000 by 30 September
