A word from William……
Ash Wednesday was the beginning of our Lenten Services. We have been using the Churches Ministry of Healing’s “Soul Spark’s” course whose aim is to aid the development of one’s own spirituality and prayer life.
The Tallaght Women’s World Day of Prayer service took place in St. Mark’s, Springfield. It was an enjoyable service and evening.
Mark Patton, a young parishioner who had only been married in St. Maelruain's a couple of years ago sadly died on St. Patrick’s night last year. It was lovely to see all his family at our St. Patrick’s day service and hope that it was some comfort to them.
On the afternoon of St. Patrick’s day I attended the “naming ceremony’”(an African tradition) of James and Precious Osingua’s baby daughter, Anna. You may recall that James was Church Warden a few years ago.
At 8pm that evening there was an enjoyable concert in the Church featuring the Irish Variety Ensemble, a brass and reed musical evening in aid of the Church roof. The concert was followed by refreshments in the small hall.
On 20th March there was a lunch in the Davenport Hotel for Nicky Gumble, co-author of the Alpha Course. He reported how attendance at his own course was up by 30% reflecting peoples changing attitudes in the current financial crisis. He said to was not a time for the church to withdraw but a time for the church to step up.
On Sunday 22nd our Good News Club hosted the tea and coffee after Church in aid of the Sunday School Societies 200th Anniversary Project “Sightsavers” and €400 was raised. Thank you to all who donated.
I would like to wish all readers of the Losset a very Happy Easter.
