Harvest Thanksgiving 20/9/2020

  Dear parishioners and friends,   Tomorrow we are observing Harvest Thanksgiving in three of our churches; St Mary's, Passage West at 9.45; Holy Trinity, Frankfield at 10.00 and St Luke's, Douglas at 11.15. (Next Sunday it will be the turn of St Michael's, Blackrock at their 11.30 service).

Douglas Union with Frankfield weekly update 5th September, 2020

Dear parishioners and friends,   Today is National Services Day, and so it was good that at 3pm this afternoon, the bells from some of our churches rang out in tribute to all who serve in our services, as well as for those who continue to work on the front line in our fight against the Covid pandemic.  While I have ceased to record worship and reflections for our parish YouTube [...]

Service and Readings for Sunday 30th August

Dear parishioners and friends,   It is hard to believe it, but exactly six months ago today,  the very first confirmed case of COVID-19 was detected in Ireland. It has been a long six months and life is now very different for us all. However we have adapted, and things which were unthinkable before, are now natural and normal.  The same is true in the parish. Our churches reopened safely in [...]

Service and readings for Sunday 23rd August

Dear parishioners and friends,   This week my '3 Minute Thought' is based, not on the Sunday readings but on a person - St Bartholomew. He is someone about whom the gospels tell us very little, yet in church we set a day aside to remember him. St Bartholomew's Day is on 24th August each year. I hope you enjoy my short reflection on him which will be available from [...]

Service and Readings for Sunday, 9th August, 2020

Dear parishioners and friends,   These weekly emails have been a very useful way of keeping in regular contact, not only with people here in Cork, but also with parishioners currently living abroad. In recent weeks, I have been in regular contact with one family, now in the US, whose newborn son has required heart surgery. Just this past week I have been in communication with another family who had [...]
