The Service starts with the church lit by candlelight. After each reading one of the candles in the front of the church is extinguished. The Christ candle is extinguished following the reading Psalm 22 which Jesus quoted on the cross.
The purpose of the service is to recreate the betrayal, abandonment and the agony of the events. It is left unfinished because the story isn’t over until Easter Day.
Held at the Croom Church.
We will soon be learning about the Psalms, the book of songs and prayers in the Bible. Our class during the church season of Lent, a time of preparation for Easter, will be "Discovering the Psalms." The class will use a workbook, which contains a plan for daily reading and reflection.
Please come and say thanks and wish Godspeed to Barbara and Philip Bingham at a celebratory event to be held at the Croom Civic Centre, Main Street, Croom. Barbara has been a Lay Reader in our group of parishes for many years. Now she and Philip are retiring and leaving Ireland!
A worship service will be held for anyone awaiting Leaving Cert results and any other young people who would like to come. It will be an informal event led by Rev. Liz on Tuesday, 16th August: the evening before results are announced. It will be at the home of the Cookes, at 8.00pm. It will include some songs, prayers, a reading, and Communion together. All are welcome — leaving certs, junior certs, their families and friends.
