The Rector writes ‘ As part of the Lenten Study group, when we were looking at various ways of being and doing Church from a diocesan perspective, a suggestion came about that we, as a parish group, might attend St Fin Barre’s Cathedral some Sunday instead of having our own morning services in St John’s and St Mary’s. The Dean of Cork, Nigel Dunne, has kindly agreed to host us for the 11:15 Service on Sunday 15th September. Please put the date in your diary now because these next two months of summer always fly by and before you know it , it’ll be September!
Another date I’d like you to note now is 15th November when we will have an evening called ‘Faith in Action’ in the parish hall. I’m hoping to invite groups like ‘Street Pastors’ , ‘Simon Community’ , ‘Samaritans’ and other groups to come and tell us about what they do and about how we can put our faith into action in a real , practical way.’
