A big thank you to all those Parishioners and their friends who so generously provided us with items for the washbags that were donated to the Ulster Hospital.
Members of the Mothers’ Union attended the Holy Communion Service on Wednesday 31st of January prior to enjoying coffee and scones in the Parlour and then assembling over forty washbags. This outreach of Mothers’ Union is particularly appreciated as often up to twenty bags are given out in any one day. According to the nursing staff the number of emergency patients admitted grows on a daily basis. One of the members also donated a selection of children’s knitwear these items being delivered to one of the shelters.
Our Curate, Chris, shared his Journey of Faith with us at our February meeting. The amount of preparation for this was much appreciated. Chris has popped into quite a few of our meetings and can always be assured of a warm welcome! On Saturday 10th of March members will meet in the Parlour at 10.00 a.m. to prepare rosebud gifts for Mothering Sunday. Our speaker on Wednesday 21st of March will be Arnold Gardiner who will share his love of painting with us. The Diocesan Festival Service will take place in St Mark’s on Monday 9th of April. The expected attendance at this Service will be about two hundred and fifty. Following the Service supper will be provided by members and other Parishioners.
