Guest Preacher Dee Huddleston this Sunday

This Sunday, Dee Huddleston from Christian Aid Ireland will be our guest preacher at the Solemn Eucharist service.  Dee has travelled to India with the organisation to lend assistance to some of the country’s neediest communities. She enjoys sharing her experiences and we look forward to welcoming her!

Please be sure to stick around after the service for our parish lunch.  The usual tea and coffee will be served along with a light lunch to raise funds for Christian Aid.  This event is our main fundraiser during Christian Aid Week and has been very well supported in the past.  We hope that many parishioners will be able to join us again this year!

Update: Saint Bartholomew’s History Book

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work to complete the publication of Saint Bartholomew’s—A History of the Dublin Parish.  Dr. Milne has uncovered a number of historical developments in his research and is therefore still writing.  The book will be published as soon as possible, and we will continue to update the congregation on its progress.  This book is an expansion of the original 1963 edition, which is now out of print.

If you would like to order a copy, please pick up a pre-order form at the back of the church or contact the parish administrator by emailing admin@stbartholomews.ie or calling 01-668-8522. For €25, your contribution will entitle you to a copy of the book.  For €50, your contribution will entitle you to a copy of the book signed by the author and, by helping to make this book possible, your name will be included in a list of supporters.
