There is a possibility of funding to produce a book, which might include some of the history of the origins of the Christian Community in Carrigtwohill, taking in some of the general history of the area with the central theme being the past 150 years of our Faith Community.
St Mary’s Church was consecrated by The Right Rev. Dr. Keane on the 15th May 1872.
It is hoped that we would have a more extensive display of memorabilia to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the date.
Possible Faith Festival
We are looking for any further suggestions for events which could take place around the time of Consecration Anniversary.
