Lenten Course 2017

Rathgar Methodist Church have invited us in the Rural Deanery of Saint Ann’s to join with them for a 6-week series of ecumenical Lenten presentations entitled “Christianity from where I’m Sitting”, from Wednesday 1st March to Wednesday 5th April inclusive at 8.00pm in Rathgar Methodist Church, Brighton Road. This series is being run under the auspices of the local Rathgar/Terenure Fellowship involving all the local churches.

David Norris, Gordon Linney, Patsy McGarry, Kieran O’Mahony, Gillian Kingston and Fiona Murdoch will share something of their religious experiences and their impressions of the church today. Admission is free, but there will be a retiring collection every evening in aid of each speaker’s nominated charity.  Everyone is very welcome and please spread the word.

Parish Walk (25th February)

The Parish walk will take place on 25th February meeting at 10.30am at the entrance to Pearse Museum, St. Enda’s Park, Grange Road, Rathfarnham, Co. Dublin. There is a cafe run by Brambles in the courtyard for refreshments after the walk. St. Enda’s is set in nearly 50 acres of beautiful parkland. The Museum tells the story of Patrick and William Pearse who lived and ran a school there from 1910 to 1916. You can see a map of the park here. There are two car parks: one Sarah Curran Avenue and the other of Taylor’s Lane. Public transport is also detailed on the web site.

Heating failure

We would like to advise all parishioners and visitors that the heating in the church is currently out of order. Unfortunately we expect the repair to take a number of weeks, as a new boiler is required. Please wrap up warmly!

Cinema Evening in Denzille Cinema

As part of our 150th Anniversary celebrations we are holding an evening of film in Denzille Cinema, located at 13 Denzille Lane, off Fenian Street behind Merrion Square. The evening will begin on Friday 20th January at 8pm with a reception first and costs €25 per person. Places for this event are limited so if you would like to attend please contact the parish office to book a seat.

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.
