Harvest Appeal 2020
Each year in Taney, we ask parishioners to make a special donation to a nominated project as a 'Thank Offering', not just for the gift and bounty of Harvest, but for all the Blessings we receive from God’s hand on a daily, weekly and on-going basis. This year, we are asking for your generosity for the provision of sanitary and toilet facilities at St. Nahi’s. This is a long awaited and overdue item on the Parish wish-list and you can see the progress below!
To donate please contact the Parish Office (01-298 5491) and make your donation using your credit or debit card. Please do remember that your contribution will be added to your regular church giving for ‘tax back’ purposes (provided your total financial contributions exceeds €250 in a calendar year).
We are extremely grateful to all our parishioners for your ongoing support, particularly at this difficult time.
WATER SUPPLY CONNECTED TO ST. NAHI’S AFTER 800 YEAR WAIT!
Following negotiations going back over a decade, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council have recently provided a water and sewer connection to St. Nahi’s Church. This means that the Parish is now in a position to install fresh water to the vestry in the Church and toilet facilities adjacent to the Church. This has been a long hoped for dream and which will not only enhance the Church facilities for parishioners attending worship, but also make the facility more attractive as a venue for small concerts and cultural events.
The provision of these utilities to the St. Nahi’s campus became possible as a result of protracted discussions with the local authority involving the exchange of a parcel of land on the Southern boundary of the graveyard owned by the County Council in return for the church authorities releasing certain restrictive covenants over Council property on the eastern boundary. As part of this exchange, the Council agreed to provide a water and sewer connection to the Church building. This exchange was negotiated by Glebewarden William Hourie and originally by his predecessor, David Randall.
Work is now underway to provide wash-up facilities to the Church vestry and the construction of a toilet in the grounds adjacent to the Church building. This will be the first time that running water and sewer utilities will have been made available to St. Nahi’s in its 800 year history! History in the making indeed!
