The day will start with a short reflection led by the Rev John Godfrey followed by a walk and then a picnic.

The Welcome Desk

During the Summer months some of you will be aware that we again had a Welcome Desk in the church. This was manned by a team of volunteers, organised by Catherine Moore Temple, Rachel Carroll and Mary Liddy. They welcomed visitors to the church, distributed  information leaflets and generally answered questions for visitors and made them feel welcome.

This effort raised over €19,500—a wonderful effort, last year. At the end of the season all these volunteers were invited to a reception hosted by the Select Vestry when refreshments were enjoyed and then there was a chance to exchange feedback as to ways to improve the effort next year.

All those involved enjoyed their opportunity to engage with the tourists. So, perhaps you might consider giving a couple of hours if you can to this effort which presents the friendly face of the church and at the same time raises essential funds for the maintenance of the parish.

Thank you.
