At our midweek service at Borris-in-Ossory on Wednesday, 10th November at 8 pm we shall be looking at the psalm probably best known to Church of Ireland members in times past; not Psalm 23, but Psalm 95—the psalm that was sung every Sunday at morning prayer as the Venite. We conclude our series on psalms on Wednesday week with a look at Psalm 23. On Wednesday, 24th November we begin a series on favourite Christmas carols.
At 11 o’clock this Thursday, 11th November, we hold a Remembrance Day Service in Borris-in-Ossory Church. Everyone is welcome at the service.
The Rector plans to take a group from the parish—and anyone else interested—to the Western Front for a short visit in June next year. Let him know if you would be interested in going
Holy Communion for All the Family
Having no Sunday School in our parishes, we need to have some way of teaching our faith to our children. The plan is that each Sunday there would be a service where we could have teaching for people of all ages. The line up this month continues as follows:
14th November—Annatrim at 1100
21st November—Roskelton at 0930
28th November—Mountrath at 1130
The success of the plan depends upon the recognition that unity is strength—if, on one Sunday, someone comes from another church to ours, then we are prepared to go theirs on the next Sunday. If the plan works it will mean each of the four churches will have a large congregation at least once a month and that we’ll have an opportunity for regular teaching.
Saints’ Days Services
The next Saint’s Day is Saint Andrew’s Day on Tuesday, 30th November when there will be Holy communion in Mountrath at 8 pm.
