Parish Notices Sunday 22nd December 2019

Thank you to William Warren-Perry for  making our wonderful Giving Tree in St Mary’s Church. We have our usual bags at the back of the church all year round but this tree allows us to really associate our giving with our Christmas traditions. Just place items on the tree and they will be sorted and delivered to Cork Simon, Penny Dinners, Cuanlee Women’s Refuge and Direct Provision in Christmas Week. Thank you.

Littlies Plus One-HELP! The toddler group needs some more people to help out. Are you free on a Monday morning for 2.5 hours? Could you go on our rota and help out every 4/5 weeks? Please contact Hilary on 086-3680513.

Christian Aid Calendars for 2020 are available at the back of both churches at a price of €10. Payment can be given to the wardens who will pass it on to John Sweeney, our Christian Aid rep.

Random Notes CCCXXVIII

Room at the Inn

“Refugees!”, I hear him sneer.

“They’re certainly not wanted here,

Unlike us they don’t belong, that’s flat.”

(If he had lived when the Holy Family sought

A haven, far from Herod’s wrath,

Would he have shown hostility like that?).

Now 2000 years have passed,

Will we heed these words at last?

“Peace on earth and goodwill to all men.”

Please help the Carrigaline Welcome Team

To fulfil one family’s dream.

Let them see there is room at the inn!
