Parish Notices Sunday 8th September 2019

The Rector writes  Most of you have already heard the news that the Bishop has appointed me to the vacant Prebendaries of Deasertmore and Killanully in St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Cork, and also to the Prebendary of Timoleague in St Fachtna’s Cathedral, Rosscarbery.

I was, of course, absolutely delighted to accept and I will let you know when the actual Services of Installation will take place after which of course I’ll have to change this  Linksheet to say  ‘The Canon writes…’ !!!

Sunflower reminder time!  I hope that some of the seeds we gave out at Rogation back in May have grown to be tall Sunflowers! Email me a photo of the Sunflower along with the height and we will see who will win this year! If you want to see last year’s winners,  the poster is still up on the noticeboard in the Parish Hall. Winner announced at Harvest.’
