ANÚNA and members of the ANÚNA International Summer School are once again generously giving a charity concert in which all proceeds will go toward our restoration fund. The concert begins at 6.00pm on Saturday, 22 June at Saint Bartholomew’s. Tickets may be purchased here.
Join us after the morning Eucharist this Sunday in the parish room for a homemade baked goods sale and a book/DVD/CD sale to aid our fundraising efforts. With Valentine’s Day upon us, there will be chocolate covered strawberries on offer, so be sure to drop in! We greatly encourage the congregation to help with these monthly fundraisers, whether by showcasing your culinary expertise or by donating your used books, CDs, or DVDs. These sales run on the second Sunday of the month and all proceeds go directly to the restoration fund. Our next sale will be after the 11.00am service on Sunday, 10 March.
The next monthly bake and book fundraiser will follow the 11.00am service this Sunday, 9 December. The Christmas baking season is upon us, and we would love to see as many parishioners as possible donate their homemade baked goods, from cakes to tray bakes to festive cookies! Now is also a good time to clear your shelves—your old books and DVDs may make the perfect Christmas gift for someone else. All proceeds go directly to the restoration fund. These sales run on the second Sunday of the month and are certainly the most delicious way to help out the church, so please get those ovens going!
All items to be sold can be dropped into the parish room before the service.
David Jones is hosting an evening barbeque on Saturday, 23 June at his home in aid of the church restoration fund. The menu includes a choice of striploin and salmon with salads. Bring your own wine or soft drinks. There is a basic donation of €15 (but you may give as much as you like!)
If you would like to attend, please contact Megan MacCausland by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01-668-8522 for more information and to book a place. Capacity is limited to 30 people, so be sure to secure your spot soon!
This Sunday is our raffle drawing, and tickets are still available! We will draw the winners after the 11.00am Eucharist service. Up for grabs are six prizes of two tickets each to Riverdance at the Gaiety Theatre on any date between 1 July—9 September, including a complimentary programme, DVD, and a glass of wine at the intermission. Raffle tickets cost €25 and sales will be limited to 100 tickets. They are available in the parish office all week!
A group of 34 headed to Pisa on 13 May for a weeklong educational/fundraising trip under the expert guidance of Professor Alistair Rowan. Alistair had done a huge amount of work to make sure everything ran like clockwork, and it did. Apart from one wet morning, we enjoyed lovely weather and delicious Italian food, along with a glorious tour of churches, fabulous villas, and gardens, all brought to life by Alistair’s eloquent explanations and backed up by a 38 page information booklet, which he had prepared for us. And the best bit? There was a surplus of €4,173 that will go toward our restoration programme! Many thanks to Alistair and the trip participants for a fun and informative trip.
