As the Welcome message says (on the left), Rath Dé on Our Work in 2021. Yes, on this last day of the Christmas season, the Feast of the Epiphany, let us pray that we be given good health to continue being of service to society in 2021 in whatever way we can.
One last look-back at an example of good work done in our parish in 2020: the restoration of the stained-glass windows in St Mary's (click on photos to enlarge.).
This work, carried out between the 1st July to the 28th October, saw the completion of the major restoration programme for our parish church that began back in November 2014 with its re-roofing. Photo-slides of the roof work can be viewed here: Exterior Renovation Nov. 2014 to Aug. 2016 , while here are those for the stained-glass windows: Interior Renovation (Final Part) July to Oct. 2020
A look at the Newsletter tab on the menu bar above will show how severely Covid interrupted our lives as citizens and parishioners last year. The newsletter more or less ceased publication at the end of June, following the retirement of Breda Carroll who edited it up till then. We begin the New Year with a very ordinary online version to which parishioners are invited to contribute if they wish to see more issues of it. Otherwise, this website will continue as best it can to keep people informed. iJ4
