A Word from William...
On the afternoon of 25th January the local Christian Unity Week service took place in St. Dominic’s, Old Bawn. It was a lovely service and it was followed by leisurely fellowship at the tea / coffee afterwards.
In February we said a sad farewell to our longstanding parishioners Stuart and Eileen Whitten. They have sold their home in Templeogue and have moved to Nenagh, Co Tipperary to be closer to their daughter Lynn and family. Stuart and Eileen were faithful worshipers here in St. Maelruain's all their married lives and founded the parish Bowling Club. Eileen organised the Flower Guild until just a few years ago as well as always being gladly on hand for any parish event. Stuart and Eileen were always very supportive to the Boy’s Brigade, Stuart being a former Captain. I will miss them and wish them every future happiness in their new home.
We welcomed back to the parish Lettie Morrow in February. She is now resident in Kiltipper Woods nursing home. We hope that she will be happy there and trust that parishioners will visit her.
At the beginning of February, Valerie and myself were invited to the Tallaght District Credit Union’s 40th annual dinner in the Maldron Hotel.
Our joint Alpha course started in the contact centre in St. Dominic’s on Wednesday 11th February with a meal.
Sunday 22nd was family service and was followed as usual by refreshments in the main hall which were hosted by John and Annama Samuel to celebrate their 16th wedding anniversary and to give thanks for John’s recovery from his illness. Thanks to John and Annama for the lovely spread and to the other Indian Parishioners who helped them.
God Bless William
