Parish Notices Sunday 10th February 2019

The Rector writes ‘Music is such an important part of our worship. It has enormous power to engage the emotions, and our Bible resounds with praise and thanks to God through music. In past years, before almost everyone could read, music helped people to remember God’s word as well as reminding people of the glories around them. We gather together in our churches to express our praise to God and to build up one another in the faith. A rich variety of music that is in harmony with the ministry of God’s word is a significant part of our liturgy underlining the role of music in our praise of God in heaven. I would like to encourage as many of you as possibly can to try and support the monthly Choral Evensong in St John’s Church. The chamber choir work so hard to produce this glorious service and we would be very much the poorer without it. It is at 7pm tonight if you can make it’

Would you like the opportunity to be part of the Carrigaline Oskars fun without having to rehearse or say anything  Now is your opportunity! Part of the filming of Sister Act will take place after the Service in St Mary’s today. What is needed are people in pews, i.e. to be part of a congregation! After the 11am Service you can grab a cuppa in the Parish Hall and come back for the short while it will take to film.

Your support would be very much appreciated by the hard working thespians and crew who are putting in lots of time and effort to make the Oskars a memorable community event.
