Summer Music

We are grateful to members of the Elgin Chorale and the Chamber Choir and to the organists who provided music for the Sunday services during July and August. Maintaining good music during the summer months enhances the worship and is much appreciated. As autumn begins we welcome back the boys, girls and gentlemen of the Choir, and wish them well as they start into a new term after the summer break.

Thank you Anúna!

Thank you to all who supported the Anúna concert on Saturday 18 June. All the proceeds from the concert were given to the Restoration Fund. A total of €3,201 was added to the fund as a result! Thank you to all at Anúna for their help and support.

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 (admin@stbartholomews.ie). 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.
