Saint Kevin’s Way

GlendaloughPilgrimage has always been an important part of the Christian tradition and of that sense of journeying together in faith. As part of the fundraising efforts for the Saint Bartholomew’s Church Restoration Appeal we will be running a sponsored walk of part of the ancient Irish pilgrim route of Saint Kevin’s Way and anyone is welcome to join us. To take part you will need a sponsorship sheet with all of the necessary information (including maps and safety information) which you can get by contacting the parish office (01 668 8522) or by email ( The event takes place on Saturday 21 May and we will gather at the upper car park at the summit of the Wicklow Gap at 10.30am. The whole walk at an easy pace should take around three hours to complete, including a break for lunch. For those with fitness concerns, the walk is all down hill! Do come and join us if you can for this event.

Parish Lunch for Christian Aid

The parish lunch for Christian Aid will be held this year on Sunday 10 May after the 11am service. The usual coffee and tea will be served together with a light lunch to raise funds for Christian Aid. This event was very well supported in the past and we hope that many parishioners will be able to join us this year again. Contributions towards the lunch will be most gratefully received.
