Saint Bartholomew’s is proud to host this year’s Women’s World Day of Prayer service on Friday, 1 March at 3.00pm. This service is part of a global event held annually on the first Friday in March. The Women’s World Day of Prayer is the largest ecumenical movement in the world organised by women, and the churches in Ballsbridge/Donnybrook take turns hosting the event in our area each year. The service for 2019 has been written by the Christian women of Slovenia and its theme is “Come—Everything is Ready!” All parishioners—not just women!—are warmly invited to attend. The service will be followed by refreshments in the parish room, to which everyone is welcome. It has been five years since Saint Bartholomew’s had the honour of hosting this special event, so do please come along and show your support!
We will celebrate our patronal festival of Saint Bartholomew on Sunday, 25 August with a said Eucharist at 9.00am and the solemn Eucharist at 11.00am. Refreshments will be available after the latter in the parish room. This is an important event in our calendar as a parish, and as such it is an ideal opportunity to invite your family and friends to join and celebrate with us!
Finally, finally, FINALLY! As more and more of the scaffolding comes down, we are able to get a sense of just how enormous an undertaking the tower’s renovation has been. The work crews’ skill and dedication (not to mention their fortitude on especially windy days) have rewarded us with a beautifully restored tower. The stonework and clock faces are positively gleaming. We are beyond grateful for all of the support we have received in funding this massive project. The bells will be ringing again before you know it!
Please note that the normally scheduled Wednesday said Eucharist services at both Christ Church Leeson Park (at 10.00am) and Saint Bartholomew’s Church (at 12.45pm) will not be held during the months of July and August.
The feast of Corpus Christi this year falls on Thursday, 20 June. The service will begin at theslightly earlier time of7.00pm and will be followed by the annual parish BBQ. This is a great event for family and friends, but we can’t do it without your help and support. If you can bring food or drink to the event, please write your name and what you intend to bring on the sheet at the back of the church. Thank you!
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.
