Last Sunday, 18th September 2022, Carrigrohane Union of Parishes welcomed the Rev. Abigail Sines and a Service of Welcome was held at the Church of the Resurrection in Blarney. The Rev. Robert Ferris, Rector of Carrigrohane Union, led the service and the Very Rev. Dermot Dunne, Dean at Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, preached the sermon. Both, the community in Blarney as well as visitors from Dublin attended the service.
The Rev. Robert Ferris said:
It was a joy and delight to welcome Abigail to the parish, both at the welcome service and the subsequent Sunday services. The service on Saturday was bittersweet for those who came to Blarney to support and encourage Abigail from Christ Church Cathedral. We took time to pray for Abigail and sought God’s blessing upon her as she begins a new phase of pastoral ministry in our parish and Diocese.
