Other News

General Vestry Register 2018:
Revision of Register of Vestrypersons - January 2018

Each year in January the Select Vestries update the Register of Vestrypersons.

All parishioners aged 18 years or over are entitled to be on this register.

This will allow you to have a vote at the Easter General Vestry when we elect the Select Vestry and Church and Glebe Wardens. This register is the church equivalent of the electoral register which allows you to vote in local and general elections. You will not be given any extra job to do by being on the register.

If you are unsure whether or not your name is on the register, you can contact the office on 8200040 and it can be checked for you. Alternatively you can complete the form which is available at the back of the church and return it either to the office or to any church warden or member of the current Select Vestry.

Castleknock Church Flower Rota:
Celebrate or remember a special occasion or loved one with flowers in the church. You may place a simple bouquet or an arrangement yourself. If you wish to give a donation to the church who will place flowers on your behalf, contact Meryl. It is the thought that counts. Flowers will be placed in various parts of the Church. A rota sheet is available on the notice board in the front porch. Please enter your name for the Sunday nearest the date of the occasion you wish to remember or celebrate. The complete wording to be printed on the service sheet should be sent to Jenny in the Parish Office. Email: castleknockparishoffice2 at eircom.net or Tel no. 01 8200040. during office hours. Should there be a Sunday where no request has been noted, the previous Sunday remembrance will be included on the service sheet.
