This has been out of print for several years and the new edition matches the old edition but with some corrections made and a new form of Morning & Evening Prayer for Sundays has been added. The price is €22 each, but should you wish to have a copy please speak to the Rector as there is a discount of 10 per cent on orders of 10 or more. We can put in a joint order.

Anyone, of whatever age, who would like to explore preparing for Confirmation should speak to the Rector urgently. The Bishop will meet with all the young people from the united diocese considering confirmation on Saturday 2ndof March in Cork.

 

  1. The Parish Envelope Giving Scheme. For some years the union of parishes has been operating an Envelope Giving Scheme. This means that if you request a packet of envelopes for each Sunday of the year you can then make your donation to the parish on a weekly basis. Should you choose to give a total annual sum of €250 or more the parish can then claim back one third of this from the government. So, for example, if you donated €5 per week, this would total €260 and by you then signing a form provided by the Hon. Treasurer, he could claim back just under €87, making your total contribution to the parish €347! If you do not presently use this scheme, please consider doing so. If you would like a packet of envelopes for 2019 please speak to the Rector and he will arrange for you to receive one. Monies given in this way are totally confidential and only the Treasurer and one other person (not the Rectorare aware of the amounts.

 

  1. The Select Vestry will meet in the St Multose Community Hallon Tues. 5thFeb. at 8:00pm.

 

 

 

 

Happy New Year to All Our Parishioners and Visitors!
