Choir of St Bartholomew’s church,

We were delighted to welcome friends from Wicklow, Greystones, Newcastle and Calary who joined us for Evensong on Sunday 21st April in Nun’s Cross Church. The service was sung by the choir of St Bartholomew’s church, Dublin directed by its choir master, Ben Barnes.
The congregation totalled almost 70 and the proceeds of the collection will be added to the Nun’s Cross Restoration Fund launched last autumn to raise money for the conservation and restoration of Nun’s Cross Church.  One new approach we are taking to fundraising for this project is the use of a QR Code and App which allows people to donate remotely and as often as desired, by credit or debit cards. This is proving popular amongst many “Friends of the Parish” as well as with our own parishioners.
The choir and congregation were hosted for a reception afterwards in the church and grateful thanks is rendered to those who provided for this, which provided an opportunity for old friendships to be rekindled and new ones forged.
Killiskey parish would like to express its gratitude to Mr Ben Barnes and the choir of St. Bartholomew’s Church, Clyde Road, Dublin for celebrating this feast of beautiful music and praise, once again, which is now an annual event in Killiskey’s diary. We look forward to their next visit with anticipation!
