History Reading Group

The next meeting of the Dromore Cathedral History Book Club will take place on Monday 25th June 2018 at 7.30pm in the Clayton Hall.

The book for discussion is Berlin at War: Life and Death in Hitler’s Capital, 1939-45 by Roger Moorhouse.

This book provides a social history of Berlin and its residents during the Second World War. Drawing upon interviews and diaries, it explores daily life in wartime Berlin and analyses issues ranging from how its inhabitants responded to the conflict and the Allies bombing campaigns to their desperate struggle to defend the capital from the Soviet invasion in 1945.

As usual, German-themed canapés and a congenial atmosphere are guaranteed. All are most welcome to attend.

 

Lap of the Lough – Saturday 23rd June

As part of the fundraising efforts for the teams travelling to Albany Diocese in July and Maridi Diocese in October, the Rector will be doing a Lap of the Lough, on his bicycle (not a battery powered bicycle!), on Saturday 23rd June.

If you would like to support him in what will be a marathon cycle of 106 miles (Dromore to Lurgan, around Lough Neagh and back to Dromore), then please do add your name to the sponsor sheet in the porches or the church office. If you are a UK taxpayer, your sponsorship can also attract Gift Aid if you add your address, including postcode, and tick the box to confirm that you are a UK taxpayer. Every pound raised will be used to part support those engaging in mission , and any excess raised will be sent to S. Sudan to meet the emergency needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Evening of Food and Praise, Friday 22nd June at 7.30pm in the Cathedral Hall

Please do join us for an evening of African themed food (food to suit all tastes will be available) and Praise to support Ross, Chelsey and Geoff as they prepare to engage in overseas mission this coming Summer and Autumn.

The evening will flow as follows from 7.30pm….

Opening praise, Main course

More praise, Desserts

Closing praise

We would love it if you could join us, so please do let us know by placing your name on the list in the church office or church porch to help us with numbers for catering.

Tickets can be purchased for £15.  We are very hopeful that by the time this evening takes place that the team travel costs will be covered so every single pound will be going to meet the emergency needs of our brothers and sisters in S. Sudan.

Girls’ Brigade Past Members’ Afternoon Tea

Sunday 10th June at 3pm in the Cathedral Hall.  Were you ever a member of our GB company?  Even if it was only for a few years, we would love you to join us.  We are hoping to have some old memorabilia and photographs on display and we would love you to come along and share your memories while enjoying some tea, scones and fancy bakes!!  In order to cater for this event, please let any one of the leaders know if you plan to attend.

Cathedral Lapel Badges

 

The Select Vestry have conceived of a fundraising idea for Parish funds which is also a great way of showing support for the Cathedral – Lapel Badges. Each badge bears the crest of Dromore and is priced at the modest amount of £3.50. Anyone wishing to purchase a badge should place their name on the list in the Church Porch or contact the Church office.

Badges which have already been ordered can be collected at the Church Porch this Sunday. Thank you.
