FROM THE RECTOR We were delighted to welcome our former student reader David Bowles to preach at our Harvest Service on 4th October (David was ordained less that a fortnight previously). Thank you to the ladies who decorated the church for harvest especially since they had just had the flower festival the week beforehand. Thank you also to the ladies for providing the supper after the service.
On 19th we hosted a concert by the Tallaght Song Writing Collective. It was a lovely evening primarily featuring guitarists but also a ukulele band as well. One of the members, Tony Barden, sang a song he composed himself based on Corinthians 13 which was particularly moving.
On 9th October , I along with The Papal Nuncio to Ireland, Charles Brown attended the launch of the 1st years ‘Buddy’ system in Mount Seskin Community School (formerly Jobstown Community School). Rev Brown related very well with the children and they enjoyed his visit to the school.
We are looking forward to our Christmas Sing Along on Friday 29th November, it is always a lovely evening and a great way to get into the festive spirit. God bless William
