Ascension Day

Thursday, 25th May: The traditional Ascension-Day-Hike to Dalkey Hill with a service during sunset. Perfect day, lovely people (apprx. 30), happy children. The topic of the little sermon: Comparing the story of Jesus taking by God to heaven with the story of the tower of Babel from Genesis 11 where the people tried to reach heaven by their own.

Irish-Finnish Wedding
