We have a said Holy Communion Service each Sunday at 8.30.  As we are asked to keep people indoors for the shortest time possible, this service has been shortened somewhat.   Whilst this service usually alternates month-about between our two churches, due to the COVID-19 restrictions regarding social distancing, the 8.30 service will be in St Thomas’ Church each Sunday.   Please notify the Rector by 12.00 midday each Saturday if you intend to go to this service the following day (Sunday).   We do not want to be in the awful situation of having to tell people that there is no room for them.   We are able to accommodate larger numbers at the 10.30 service in St Philip and St James’ Church.   All are welcome.

Mount Merrion Easter General Vestry
St Thomas’ Church, Mount Merrion Co. Dublin

Easter General Vestries

The Diocesan Councils of Dublin and Glendalough have instructed the parishes of the dioceses to hold Easter General Vestries meetings between 6th August and 6th September 2020.

 

The Easter General Vestry is the Annual General Meeting of the Parish.  At the meeting, there is a review of the previous year and a preview of the year ahead.  Any member of the parish can attend the Easter General Vestry, and may speak at the Easter General Vestry, but only those who have signed up to the Register of Vestrypersons can vote or hold office.  The Register is updated in January each year.

This year, we also have triennial elections which means that you have to elect Parochial Nominators (whose responsibility it is to find a new Rector should the present one ‘do a runner’!) and Diocesan Synodspersons (who represent the parishes at Diocesan Synod).

Please value your right to have a say, and your right to vote.  Do please support your parish by attending the Easter General Vestry.  There will be social distancing at each meeting and attendees are asked to wear a face covering.

Mount Merrion Easter General Vestry Meeting will be held on Monday 24th August 2020 at 20.00 hours in St Thomas’ Church Hall (the Monk Gibbon Hall).

'A Quiet Christmas'
St Thomas’ Church, Mount Merrion Co. Dublin

This Service is designed for those who may not want the ‘razzle dazzle’ of Christmas (so to speak). And this may be for any number of reasons; maybe because of illness, or bereavement, or… It is a quiet, reflective service and as ‘quiet and reflective’ do not often mix well with children(!), we ask people not to bring their children to this service, but to go instead this morning to the Christingle Service in St Philip and St James’ Church at 11.30, which is anything but quiet!
