Carols by Candlelight

The Cathedral Carol Service will take place on Thursday 20 December at 7.00pm.The Cathedral choir will be joined by the children of Our Lady and St. Anne’s Primary School and Joe Kirwin will speak for a short time on the work of the Mercy project, which we hope to begin in earnest in January. There will be a collection during the evening and the proceeds will go to support this work.

On Saturday 22 December there will be the usual Advent reconciliation day.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the work of the Mercy Project so far. We are at a very exciting stage in our development and are looking to start our work in January. But to do that we need your help. We are looking for volunteers who can offer any skills or time they may have.

We shall also be holding an open evening for everyone to come along and see the Hub and find out more information on Wednesday 9th January from 6.00 - 8.00 pm.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like some more information please contact Joe Kirwin.
