The Rector writes ‘Today is Trinity Sunday and as luck (!) would have it I am baptising three children in St John’s church this morning .. A great occasion indeed. We welcome Ross and his cousins Alex & Mila to our Christian family and assure them of our support and prayers in the years to come.
Speaking of Christian Families, the Christian Aid envelopes are now at the back of both the churches if you would like to take one away and ‘fill’ it. The children in our parish school brought back in their Lenten boxes last week and John Sweeney, our Christian Aid Parish representative, came in and led our Assembly. The children were all very well behaved indeed and John was very impressed! You can return your Christian Aid envelopes to the Parish office or just put them in the collection basket and I will make sure they get to John.
Thank you also to everyone who helped at yesterday’s Fete and to all those who came along and supported it. The annual Fete is our biggest fundraiser in the year so huge thanks to Eddie Pierce and his team of hard workers yet again.’
RECYCLING WORKSHOP. MONDAY 28th May @ 8pm in PARISH HALL
The Recycling Ambassador Programme is a VOICE initiative funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, and the Regional Waste Management Offices to improve Ireland’s recycling rates and reduce levels of contamination in household recycling bins. Many of us have become confused about what can and cannot be recycled in our recycling bins. VOICE Ireland’s Recycling Ambassador Programme will show you what you can recycle in your household bin.
Dan Boyle has been involved in environmental campaigning for almost thirty years. He has been particularly prominent as an elected public representative in local and national government.
