Annual IDAHOT Day Service in Saint Anne’s Church, Shandon, Cork

Last Sunday, 22nd May was Trinity Sunday, which highlights the loving unity, harmony and inclusiveness of the Triune God.  This year it coincided with the annual Service in St Anne’s Church,  Shandon, Cork to mark IDAHOT Day (International Day against Homophobia).  A large group of people, including Cork’s LGBT Choir Choral ConFusion joined the usual Sunday congregation.  An address was delivered by Ronnie Dorney of Cork LINC.   The parishioners kindly hosted a well-supported reception in the parish hall after the Service
