The Rector writes ‘Coming up at the end of the month is the annual ‘Gift Day’ in the Rectory (on Sunday 25th from 12 noon until 3pm) and as always I would encourage you to drop into the Rectory during this time for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat. A letter along with the special annual Gift Envelope should be posted out to you in the next couple of weeks but please do try & drop in one way or another. People give to their parish in many ways and all ways are appreciated and go into making the wonderful tapestry of relationships that we enjoy in the Carrigaline Union.
