As you can see, a new Tabernacle has been installed behind the Altar in the Main Church. This was carried out last Tuesday morning. It is a worthy New Home for the Lord Jesus in the Main Chapel. It also provides a focal point and a renewed aid for prayer in the Church. Jesus has come out of the shadows and taken his place in the centre of the Sanctuary! The new Tabernacle has been reconditioned (brass exterior and interior) following its earlier use in a Church in England. As you can appreciate, despite the Tabernacle being “second hand” it was still a considerable cost. Inclusive of everything (also brass sanctuary lamp holder), the total cost amounted to €5046.25. Should anyone wish to assist in defraying part of the cost, any donations would be appreciated. P.S. We have been advised that the Tabernacle has received four coats of lacquer as part of reconditioning. Therefore, it should be cleaned with a dry cloth only and no products used on it.

First Holy Communion Party: Thank you to the ladies who organised the Party in the Community Centre and to everyone for your support. All donations were gratefully appreciated.

You are invited to a Fatima Film in Fox Hall, St Columba’s Parish Centre, Glenswilly on Sunday 27th May at 4pm. Free Admission.
