SHINE A LIGHT FOR THE DIOCESE JERUSALEM APPEAL
The United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough have launched an appeal to support the Diocese of Jerusalem in its efforts to deal with the impact of the current war.  ‘Shine a Light for the Diocese of Jerusalem’ the funds raised by Dublin and Glendalough will go to support the Diocese of Jerusalem and its institutions in dealing with the fall out of the conflict in whatever way is needed.  Archbishop Michael Jackson has urged the people of the dioceses and beyond to support this appeal for the Diocese of Jerusalem. He said: “The deepening situation of distress and disintegration of human life and of human dignity in Israel and Gaza deserves our response and our support.
You can make your donation by contacting the Parish Office on 01-2985491 or placing your donation on the collection plate any Sunday between now and the time the appeal closes at the end of Lent clearly marked ‘Jerusalem’.  Your support is very much appreciated.  The Rector
