Sunday 25th August
Sunday the 25th August will, sadly, be our Rectors last service in the parish before her retirement. To honour her retirement we will have only one service in the parish and that is in St. James’ Mallow at 11am followed by lunch. Please RSVP to our Parish Secretary, Linda Deane 086/8185290 or 022/24634 before 20th August if you are hoping to come.

Parish Fete
Please come and support the Parish Fete on Saturday 10th August from 11am to 3pm.  There is a charge of €2 at the gate for Adults and children are free. There will be a raffle on the gate ticket. There will be all the usual stalls and a raffle. We are asking parishioners for contributions to the hampers (which are 1st and 2nd prize in the raffle) and it will be put together at the discretion of the Fete committee. There is a rota going around and if you have not already been asked and are free to help please let one of the committee know what time you are available to help and what stall you would be willing to help on. If you have any queries about the fete please contact the committee. The committee is Canon Eithne, Linda Deane, James or Hazel Ladd, Richard Lynch, Ruth Sherlock, Jackie Nagle and Diana Buckley.  Please ensure any items you send in for the fete are in good working condition and that there are no items out of date.

Sunday 30th June
Following church in St. Mary’s Church Doneraile on Sunday 30th June we had an American Tea Party Picnic. This was a fundraiser for the parish and €1,040 was raised on the day. Thanks to all who hosted tables and to all who came and supported and to those who sent on donations. It was a very sociable day and the weather just about held off.

Sympathy
We wish to send our sympathy to the Chamberlain/Lysaght family on the death of Peter Douglas Chamberlain who was buried in Doneraile on 3rd of June. Also our sympathy to the Marie Nagle on the death of her sister Muriel Sutton and to her husband and all the family. The funeral service took places on 17th June in St. James’ Church Mallow.

Mothers Union
Thanks to all who travelled to the Diocesan Service in Carrigaline on the 30th May at 7.30pm. Bishop Colton was the speaker and Mrs. Hilary Dring was commissioned as our new Diocesan President. Our outing was held on Saturday 6th July (hopefully all will have enjoyed this)
