Rector's Diary

My diary is almost full between now and mid June! Whilst there is always room for day time visits and pastoral work, please do not invite me to any more meetings or events in the evenings!

This week, I will be chairing the Select Vestry on Monday, hosting the Confirmation Class BBQ on Tuesday, wedding work on Wednesday, School Governors on Wednesday and hopefully a meeting in Moira and then the Table Quiz on Friday. I'm off on Saturday and running the Benone Surf n Turf 10K.


What if the church saw blood donation as part of it's charity giving? NITB/Organ Donation and the Church of Ireland along with other churches are encouraging church members to give blood. I have found that many people refuse to give because they are scared of needles. However, if you're not scared to receive blood for yourself or a loved one, then you should be willing to give blood also.

The same principle is true of organ donation. Giving is an important part of Christian living so be willing and attend a blood donation session. There are donation sessions this week in St Macartin's on Tuesday and Wednesday 1:30 pm - 4.00 pm and 5.15 pm - 8.00 pm. I'll be making my 41st donation, why not make your 1st?

Mothers' Union

Mothers' Union Outing will take place on Thursday 4 June to Crom Castle for a tour of the West Wing and an evening meal.
