Message from Bishops' Appeal

Below is a link to a press release regarding Bishops' Appeal response to the growing Covid crisis in India.
This gives us all an opportunity to help. We are blest in that we will avail of our vaccination free of charge. Perhaps we could consider contributing the cost of our vaccination to Bishops' Appeal to be used to help our less well off brothers and sisters who are overwhelmed. Details of ways to contribute are contained within the link below, through the bank, Diocesan Office or Parish Office.

Choristerships at St. Patrick's Cathedral

Stuart Nicholson is the Master of the Music at Saint Patrick's Cathedral and they are looking for this year's intake of choristers to join them in the choir stalls and school in September. As they are not able to recruit in the usual way, they are reaching out directly  to interested parents via schools in the area, music centres, choirs and churches, as well as good old-fashioned word-of-mouth.
Therefore attached below  is a flier and a letter for parents, which may be of interest to those with musically inclined children or grandchildren, or those teaching music in the parish.
