Holy Week 2022


We’re looking forward to having Bishop Harold Miller and his wife, Liz, with us in the parish for the whole of Holy Week and Easter – from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday inclusive!

 Harold was Rector in Carrigrohane Union of Parishes from 1989 to 1997, so he knows us a little!  He was also Rev Robert’s Bishop when he was a Curate – so he knows Robert a little too!  We look forward to sharing the Holy Week journey together:

  • Everyone is welcome to all the services – and every evening (Monday-Friday) there will be a service in The Carraig Centre at 7.30 pm.
  • On Wednesday there’s a new-look lunch opportunity (and a chance to meet Harold & Liz!) with the MELTing Pot lunch – to Meet, Eat, Laugh and Talk – in The Carraig Centre, 1.45 for 2 pm lunch (adults!).
  • On Friday there’s a family occasion in The Carraig Centre from 10.30 – 11.30 am. Kids – bring your adults – and anyone else who’d like to come along is very welcome (don’t need a child with you!)!   It would be very helpful to know how many people are planning to come (via the Adventurers Parents WhatsApp group, or phone 4877260 and leave a message!) – but if you suddenly decide to come along – please just arrive!!! We’ll be thinking about the events of Good Friday – and why it’s ‘Good’! It’s not Adventurers…it’s not Lighthouse…it’s not a service…it’s not a ‘holiday club’ – but it may be a little bit of all of those!   So come along and enjoy an hour of Friday Family Time!

On Friday, there may also be the opportunity to join with the Roman Catholic church in Ballincollig on the regular Walk of Witness through the village – beginning at 12 noon outside the Church of St Mary & St John, Ballincollig. 

  • On Saturday we join the 24/7 worldwide prayer movement and will be ‘Guarding the Tomb’ outside The Carraig Centre! If you’d like to take a slot on the rota (no one will ever be alone!) – contact Matt at matt@carraigcentre.ie or 085 1080067.

On Easter Day we will celebrate with a sunrise service in Blarney at 6.30 am, Holy Communion at 9.30 am in St Peter’s, Holy Communion in The Carraig Centre at 11 am, Holy Communion at 11 am in Inniscarra – and a service in Inniscarra at 7.30 pm.
