Glin Red Cross: Thanks to all who turned out for the recent AGM.   There was a good turnout, and a lot was discussed for the year ahead.  We now have 18 people on a rota for carrying the Defib Mobile and this is proving very successful.  Please be aware that the Mobile number for any cardiac emergency is 087 6230032.  We will be advertising shortly for upcoming Cardiac First Responder (CFR) courses.  We would like to raise awareness of the value of completing this course, and are appealing to our local clubs, schools and businesses to consider a participant from each sector for training in one of our CFR courses.  The cost is just E30 per person, which is a very competitive price, as a course of this standard normally costs in the region of E70 to E80.  The course is certified under the Red Cross and is valid for two years.  If you are interested in getting more information or want to sign up for a course, please contact Marie Fitzgerald 086 8691821 or Anne Horan on 087 9186556.  For anyone who has already trained and would like to put this knowledge into practice, we will be holding sessions in the near future, and a text will be sent out when a date is scheduled.

Synod Agenda:  We invite people to respond in their own homes to the following questions:

  1. What can be done to be inclusive of those who don’t feel connected to the faith/community? Why do you continue to participate or why do you not continue to participate?
  1. What are the most important religious/social issues facing the Diocese of Limerick? (What are the issues you would like to see on the agenda of the Synod in 2016?)
  1. (A question around where we see God at work, the Spirit active, the Kingdom of God breaking in – this needs to be broken down and named simply but it might help to introduce the question and fram it in the words of Kavanagh: God is in the bits and pieces of Everyday – A kiss here and a laugh again, and sometimes tears, a pearl necklace round the neck of poverty). Where do we experience love, truth, goodness, hope, joy?

A confidential box will be provided for your responses at the Church.
