Everyone likes to get a little surprise in the post every so often. And more so coming up to special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas.
This year, being the year that it has been, Cork Diocesan Youth Council (CDYC) and the Diocesan Youth Officer, Hilda Connolly, decided to do just that and send some Christmas cheer to the young people across the Diocese. An application for the COMHAR Grant was accepted by the Church of Ireland Youth Department, and so the the project got underway.
It was decided that the gift to be sent to everyone would consist of an Advent Calendar with daily bible passages behind each door, a bible resource booklet and some treats.
Having received numerous emails, texts and phone calls in response from parents and young people, it seems that this little surprise in the post was very much appreciated.
CDYC and Hilda would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and encouragement during the past year especially and to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for 2021.
