Summer has been for many a time of well-deserved holidays and recreational activities. We hope all our readers have had some opportunity to relax and re-charge the proverbial batteries before the advent of the traditional Autumnal madness! Here in Monkstown parish church, we have had a busy summer of heritage led activities and it has been good to see the church doors open for Summer of Heritage and Heritage Week. Our sincere thanks to Etain Murphy and Jean Boydell and their helpers for all their hard work and preparations for our exhibitions and welcoming of visitors and pilgrims. 

Our thanks also to Liz Neill-Watson, Sue McHugh and helpers for organising the annual village Art Exhibition in the Knox Hall which was a visual treat and social success. Our thanks also to the many artists who displayed their arts and crafts and to the National Maritime Museum, Cafe du Journal, Searsons and George Stevens furniture removals for all their kindness and support. 

Autumn of course sees the return of parish organisations after the summer recess and we wish them a successful year of activities ahead. Monkstown parish church will be open on Culture Night for tours, organ recitals and heritage activities on Friday 22 September from 5.00pm to 11.00pm. Please do come along and join us for the evening. 

The annual community Harvest Festival takes place at 7.30pm on Sunday 8 October. All are most welcome to come along and celebrate the joys of harvest. Our guest preacher will be the rector of Drumcondra - the Revd Garth Bunting.

 Our Autumn church service schedule returns in September with the 9am (weekly) Sunday Eucharist and the 10.45 (1st Sun) Eucharist, (2nd Sun) Matins, (3rd Sun ) Eucharist, (4th Sun) Family Service. Please do join us for worship. Phone 2806596 email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
