Throughout Advent and over Christmas you are invited to support the ongoing work of Bishops’ Appeal. Envelopes can be found on the pews in the church. Please put any contribution you may like to make into one of these envelopes and place it on the offertory plate. The Church of Ireland Bishop’s Appeal is the Church’s World Aid and Development programme. If you would like to know more about Bishop’s Appeal and the projects it supports check out its new website at: bishopsappeal.ireland.anglican.org
The St Paul’s choir is joining the choir of St Patrick’s Dalkey to lead an Advent Carol Service in the Dalkey church for the cluster of Church of Ireland parishes in our area this Sunday, November 27th at 7pm. All are very welcome. There will be no evening service in St Paul’s this Sunday.
There’s a chance this Saturday morning, November 19th, to start your day with sumptuous singing, exquisite organ music and delicious home-baked cakes and coffee! It’s a fund-raising event for the Pipeworks Organ Festival.
Come along and hear the St Paul’s choir singing and renowned organist Mark Duley, the festival’s artistic director, performing works by Faure, Bach, Stainer, Rutter, Vierne and Goodall.
Date: November 19th
Venue: St Paul’s Church, Glenageary
Tickets: €10 at the door
Tea, coffee and cakes served after recital in the parish centre.
If you have service medals that belonged to a relative or friend you might like to wear them at our Remembrance Service at 10.30am this Sunday, November 13th, in their honour and in memory of all those who have served. The Act of Remembrance will be within the service of Parish Communion.
Meanwhile, the children will go to Sunday Club,where the talk will be about standing firm when you are afraid and remembering Jesus is with you. In the Gospel reading of the day (Luke 21. 5–19) Jesus tells his disciples that despite war, famine and fearful events, that if they stand firm in their belief of Him, they will gain life. As a Remembrance Sunday activity, the children will be remembering those who have died.
