During the General Vestry meeting (annual general meeting of parishioners), held recently for Moviddy Union of Parishes in the Diocese of Cork, the Priest-in-Charge, the Reverend David Bowles, acknowledged the outstanding contribution of one parishioner – Mrs Ivy Dennis – to the parish.
Ivy has been an active member of the select vestry for 50 consecutive years. She first became a member in 1970. She was honorary treasurer from 1980 to 1986. Since 1986, Ivy has remained Honorary Secretary.
She has been a huge support to all the clergy over the last 50 years. David Bowles said:
Since I came to the parish last November, it has been fantastic to have Ivy at the end of the phone, to furnish me with any information or insight that I might need. Moviddy Union is truly blessed to have Ivy as secretary.
