The Rector writes: ‘Today, the 29th June, is the day the Church sets aside to remember St Peter. Together with 24th June, which is the Birth of John the Baptist, traditionally this date is often chosen to hold the ordination services of priests & deacons. I myself was made a deacon on 24th June 2005 and was ordained priest on this day , 29th June 2006. St Peter was , and is, a great human role model for anyone, not just for those of us who are ordained priest. He was a flawed human being yet through him God’s work was done. He denied Jesus three times and was still chosen by him to be as leader. …. very comforting indeed! Jesus told Peter three times to ‘feed my sheep’ – plain & simple instructions and Peter, to his credit, rose to the task assigned to him. So today, as the 29th June falls on a Sunday, we will hear about Peter as we use these appointed Collect and Readings rather than the ones appointed for 2nd Sunday after Trinity.’
Please note the Parish Office is closed until Monday 7th July at 915am.

Random Notes No. CII
Transcribed verbatim beneath is a rather interesting list of the Church Wardens for the Parish of Carrigaline for a period of some twenty years from 1837.
The list is written in a clear legible hand on a single sheet of paper loosely inserted under the front cover of the old book of minutes of meetings of the Select Vestry of Carrigaline, and reads as follows:
