The good news for our parish is that the Bishop has had an application from two ladies who want to come and minister to us for a three year period. They visited the parish on Fri 26th Jan, were interviewed and shown around, with the result that they were offered the job and they accepted it. They should be with us by the end of April. So we have their combined ministry to look forward to and to pray for. They are coming from a parish in the south of England.

It would be good practise if you could follow the Lent Chalenge as supplied by the Bishop.

We still need more people to prepare the tea/coffee & eats after the services on Sundays in Killorglin. This provides an opportunity for parishioners to talk to each other and to share views on issues that matter. It also gives visitors a chance to meet parishioners and it makes them feel really welcome.

The flower rota also needs the addition of more volunteers to help keep the church looking cared for by having a clean carpet with fresh flowers on the pedistals on Sundays.

Both of these rota lists are on the lectern at the back of the church. The tea rota is for one Sunday at a time and the flower rota is for a month at a time. It would be better if two people worked together as a team for these jobs.

We need more people willing to read lessons in Killorglin on Sundays. It provides a good service in many ways. You get a week to practise the readings before the Sunday.

Thank you all for any support you are giving during the vacancy, and there is a lot of it happening.
