Douglas Churches Together Start Holy Week with Palm Sunday Walk of Witness in Cork

Douglas Churches Together set up a Holy Week and Easter stall at each of the two shopping centres in Douglas, Co. Cork

Palm Sunday in south Cork was marked, for the ninth year in a row, by a Walk of Witness by members of Douglas Churches Together in the southern suburbs of Cork City.  Clergy and representatives of  the three member churches, met on Palm Sunday afternoon. Beginning in Douglas Community Park, the group processed, singing hymns, listening to readings and offering prayers, to the entrance to Saint Columba’s Roman Catholic Church, and on to the churchyard at St Luke’s Church of Ireland Church. The final destinations were the two shopping centres in Douglas village – Douglas Village Shopping Centre and Douglas Court Shopping Centre, where Douglas Churches Together opened stalls which will remain open throughout Holy Week.
