Celebrating Trinity Sunday in Holy Trinity Church, Rathkeale: Canon Patrick Comerford with the churchwardens, Niall West and Daphne Casey

Rathkeale and Kilnaughtin Group of Parishes

Rathkeale, Askeaton, Castletown and Kilnaughtin

Priest-in-Charge: The Revd Canon Patrick Comerford,
The Rectory, Askeaton, Co Limerick.

Summer is often a quiet time in parishes throughout the Church of Ireland. But summer this year is filled with the news and joys of baptisms, engagements and weddings and choir visits, the fun of the parish barbeque and plans for the Harvest.

Recent visitors to the parish included clergy and readers who took part in a training day on liturgy and worship in Saint Mary’s Church, Askeaton. The Revd Michael Cavanagh of Kenmare introduced participants to creative ideas about family services and the Service of the Word, and Canon Patrick Comerford and Stephen Fletcher of Kilrush introduced a ‘Teaching Eucharist.’

Nicky White (Nantinan) and Rob Foley (Cork) are getting married in Saint Mary’s Church Askeaton on 7 July.

The engagement has been announced between Sarah Anne Drew, daughter of Ralph and Ann Drew, Ballyvogue, Askeaton, and Brian Dennehy of Listowel.

July has five Sundays in the month, so there is a joint group celebration of the Eucharist at the Rectory on Sunday 28 July, followed by the parish summer barbeque. All welcome!
