Back in the early months of 2020, we were at the end of a seven-year restoration programme and finishing off the last large section in the Chapel of Memory when the world was engulfed in a great concern over a new virus. All of our plans for a celebration had to be put on hold for what we thought might be about a month. Little did we know it would be more than two years! As such, this year our patronal festival will be an extra special occasion. Not only will it mark Saint Bartholomew’s Day, but it will also be a service of thanksgiving, where we will acknowledge those who were of immense help and support to us throughout the works and celebrate all that we have been able to achieve.
Please join us this Wednesday, 24 August at 7.30pm. The archbishop of Dublin will serve as celebrant and preacher, and the service will be followed by a reception with a special cake. This is an important event in our calendar as a parish, so it is an ideal opportunity to invite your family and friends to join and celebrate with us. Looking forward to seeing you then!
