LENT 2019
Daily Prayer in Lent
This week, Matins will be said in the Clergy Room of the Parish Centre at 9.30am on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  All are welcome to attend.
 
Lenten Lunches

Our Lenten Lunches, in aid of Third World Charities, including Christian Aid, continue to be held on Thursdays during Lent from 12.00pm to 1.30pm.  Please tell your friends and neighbours about this and invite them to come along.
 
Annual Bishops’ Appeal Fund Collection

We are making our annual collection for the Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal Fund during Lent.  The Bishops’ Appeal Fund provides much needed aid and education in developing countries and in times of natural disaster.  Please give as generously as you can.  It will be much appreciated.  Information leaflets and special collection envelopes are available in the churches throughout the season of Lent.
 
CONFIRMATION CLASS
Will take place in Embury House, Wesley College at 6.45pm on next Thursday 21st March.
 
BROADCAST SERVICE
Taney Parish was asked to ‘showcase’ the new ‘Order for Morning Prayer for use on Sunday’ on RTE.  This Service was broadcast on RTE1 on Sunday 10th March from the television studios in Donnybrook, led by the Rector, Canon Warren and the Curate, the Rev. Nigel Pierpoint and members of the Taney Parish choirs under the direction of Dr. David Adams and Ms. Helen Doyle.  Many very positive messages have been received from around the country.  We thank all those who participated and who worked so hard up to the recording date.
 
SAY YES TO THE DRESS!
The final push is on for our bargain-laden Parish Fundraiser for ladies.  ‘Say Yes to My Dress’ to be held in the Parish Centre from 7-10pm on Wednesday 3rd April..  Donations will be gratefully received in the Parish Centre on 1st and 2nd April from 6-8pm.  We are ideally looking for items in your wardrobe that you have never worn or no longer use.  Please ensure all donations are in mint condition!  Admission is €5.  Please note that only cash and cheques will be accepted on the night.  The organisers are in need of good-quality clothes hangers.  If you have any extra, all will be gratefully received!
 
FRIDAY LUNCHES
Yvonne and the kitchen staff provide a full hot lunch (two or three courses) each Friday in the Parish Centre.  The cost is €10 (two courses) or €12 (three courses).  As well as being popular with couples and those who live alone, it is also a very popular social occasion.  All are welcome.
 

CARD PAYMENTS
Your flexible friend!  The Parish Office now has the facility to accept payments/donations by either debit or credit cards.  Please feel free to use this facility instead of cheque/cash payments.  Please contact the Parish Office for further information.


LECTORS & INTERCESSORS
We value the Ministry of those who read the Scripture readings and lead the Intercessions at the Sunday morning services.  If you would be interested in joining this group, please contact the Parish Office (01-2985491) as we have some vacancies at present.

 

HOSPITAL VISITS

The clergy would appreciate being told if parishioners are in hospital, going into hospital, are being transferred or if they have been discharged, and will be pleased to offer pastoral support.  Please understand that the clergy are not automatically informed when parishioners are admitted to hospital. 

 

 TRANSPORT

We have a number of Parishioners who would dearly love to attend Sunday Services, and who require transport.  If you feel in any way that you could offer to collect one or two of these parishioners it would be very much appreciated.  Please contact the parish office or one of the clergy if you can assist.
