Service for Sunday 17 January, 2021

      Dear parishioners and friends,   Apparently 'you're on mute!' was the most often used phrase of 2020. It looks like it will be a prominent one in 2021 too. We use it when we can see the other person on the Zoom call but can't hear what they are saying until they click on the icon to activate their microphone. It takes a conscious decision to communicate fully with another [...]

New Year Greetings and a Challenge!

  Dear parishioners and friends,   Our churches may be closed, and in light of the statement by An Taoiseach yesterday evening, our ability to travel is now restricted and we cannot meet up with friends and family in the usual way.

Children’s Crib Service and Christmas Day online service

    Dear parishioners and friends,   Our annual Crib Service on the afternoon of Christmas Eve always proves very popular with both children and adults. This year we can't hold it due to the public health restrictions. It would not be safe to have lots of children gather around the crib in St Luke's Church and put all the animals and characters in it, as they usually do. [...]

Services for Sunday 13th December and Christmas arrangements

Dear parishioners and friends,   Yesterday you received an attachment to the email sent from the Parish Office containing the Advent/Christmas edition of Parish Matters.
