The Bread at all Eucharistic Services is Gluten-Free.

The Rector of the Parish is the Reverend Peter Rutherford tel. 021-4772220 and e-address peterrutherford@me.com. The parish website is www.kinsale.cork.anglican.org. Please try to leave Fridays free for the Rector and his family, except for pastoral emergencies.

2. Churches are, of course, open for public worship, but we must still be careful about potential infection and therefore we note the following:

Please do not come to church services if you are feeling unwell.

People are invited to wear masks to reassure others and ensure that they keep distance from others.

The Rector will continue to sanitise his hands before, during and after Communion. The Rector will continue to be the only person to receive the wine, using vessels brought from home and returned to home for later washing. The Rector will wear a mask while distributing Communion. People are invited to receive Communion, but only in the Bread form. Those not wishing to receive Communion will be offered a Blessing but will not be touched.

The Rector continues to send out the weekly Parish Reflections, as this has proved important for keeping in touch with the wider community of parishioners and friends.

3.  The Easter General Vestry will be held on Mon. 2nd May at 7:00pm, in the Church Room in the church of St Multose, for the appointment/election of the Select Vestry and presentation of 2021 accounts. This will be the first time we can use this new facility.

5.  We hope to be able to formally ‘dedicate’ the Church Room in the church of St Multose, Kinsale, in not too long. There are just a few little things to be sorted. There are excellent facilities for the parish and other community groups. News on a date will follow soon.

6.  The Lenten Appeal was divided equally between the Irish Red Cross and Unicef appeals for Ukraine. The total raised was €1,840, therefore €920 to each charity. Thanks so much to all who donated.

Rev Peter Rutherford       Rector.
