Newsletter August - September 2018


I hope everybody got some benefit from the long season of heat and humidity. Yes, some found it difficult and our farmers suffered considerably; as did gardeners.
The newsletter has undergone a review and clean-up!

After much consideration and consultation, the organ in Fethard has undergone some repair; which should keep it going in the short time, at least. For the next 10 - 15yrs perhaps. The woodworm has also been treated. It is now playable. This was a decision made by the parishioners; who spent considerable time weighing up the options together and they are to be admired for the realistic conclusions they came to. This was about working together, trusting each other and looking to the future with realism.

The “Souls of Our Shoes” is a project inspired by a desire to speak out and do something about gender violence. The shoes have been donated by Mothers Union members. Each pair has a card attached on which the donor  has written a comment/short explanation as to why the shoes, their “lives”, their treatment, the manner in which they were left to age behind closed doors, mis-shapen in the cause of somebody’s pride/lack of respect might be some sort of mirror image of how some in every community are treated.
Do if you get the chance visit Christ Church Cathedral Dublin; its a great place to visit anytime!

Your Prayers – Please remember those who are unwell, at home & in hospital. At this time we need to pray, especially, for peace.


Sunday Life -This is an hour-long programme on TippFm which is broadcast from 7- 8am on Sunday mornings. It usually comprises music, reading and interviews. We keep it light as most of our listeners have just woken up!


Bio-Diversity Project – Autumn is the time that is best for planting perennials and shrubs. All contributions to our project in Old St Mary’s are most welcome. Our latest project has been to create a rose bed. Any help you might be able to offer is always most welcome.


Whist Drives – We will have our 1st Drive of the season on Friday, 12th October 2018 @ 8.00pm sharp. Contributions to prizes and supper welcome.


Baptism – Christopher John Boyle, son of Ian & Jennifer was Baptized during a parish Eucharist on Sunday, 22nd July in Old St Mary’s, Clonmel. His Mum is from Clonmel and she and Christopher’s Dad were marriage in Old St Mary’s three years ago. They are now active parishioners of Malahide Parish, Co Dublin. We pray that Christopher will grow in faith and in the love of his Lord.


Marriage – Congratulations to Adele Armstrong and Denis Powell who were married in St Patrick’s Church, Innishlounaght on Friday 20th July 2018. The Rector officiated; assisted by Rev Fr Billy Meehan, Irishtown. We wish Denis and Adele every blessing as they begin their married life together.


Bereavement – Aileen Dorothy Jones died peacefully in the Cottage Nursing Home, Clonmel on 25th June 2018 at the age of almost 98yrs. She was a lady with great faith. Her Funeral Service took place in old St Mary’s and interment took place in exceptionally hot weather in Tullaghmeelan. Our sympathy goes to her daughter, Melanie Cooper. May she rest in peace.

Larry Hopkins died suddenly on 9th July 2018. He had lived for some years in Cahir before moving to Fethard about 10 yrs ago. His funeral Service took place in Holy Trinity Church, Fethard on Monday, 16th July 2018. Cremation took place in Cork. We sympathise with his family who travelled to Ireland for the obsequies.


Lay Reader Training – We all rely on our Lay Readers to keep our Sunday worship active in our parishes. At the moment, we are experiencing the retirement of a number of them who have served our Diocese for many years. As time moves on, it is natural and usual, that people retire. We rely on the generosity of members of our congregations to offer themselves for training for this important ministry. In our own area, there are a number of Lay Readers who have reached the age at which they become “Emeritus”; which means that they no longer have any obligation to serve anywhere, but may do so if they choose to. Most opt to serve only in their own parishes. So, we need some new people who, after training, would enable us to keep our churches open Sunday by Sunday.  If you wish to consider offering yourself to this ministry; your first port –of-call is your Rector.
