Our Christmas celebrations 2014 proved to be very meaningful and helped many to capture the true spirit of the season. The Carol Service which was followed by a seasonal reception organised by Peter and Hilary Cobb together with Hilary Cran and Sue Forsyth, was greatly appreciated by all. At all the Services, the atmosphere was helped in no small way by the team work of a number of people. The Church, as always, was beautifully decorated by our talented flower arrangers under the watchful eyes of Janet Moore and Brigid FitzSimon and the Christmas tree was sourced and provided by David Cooper. The music and augmented choir were ably led by our organist and director of music, Paul McNulty. To them, to readers and churchwardens, a big “Thank you”. Our special Advent “Green Jar” collection raised €818 for the joint charities; “The Hope Foundation” and “Habitat for Humanity”, and the Carol Service collection raised €815 for “Childline”.
