Yesterday St.Finian’s celebrated St.Martin who shared his coat with a beggar. At minimum 75 Lanterns with 200 folks crowded the Church and Lutherhaus. We had a lantern workshop and a rehearsal of the Martin-role-play, followed by a service with the role-play and the march around the block. Thank to all who have made that happen! (For a church with 900 people scattered over the hole Irish island 200 attending the lantern walk is a lot!).
Today another Lantern was lit during the service in Clencree: German Remembrance Day, commemorating the victims of wars and praying for peace in an ecumenical service, followed by the wreath-laying ceremony and the German Ambassador’s speech.
Many lights of hope in a difficult time.
