Did you all get Howard's email on April 26, inviting us to a reunion dinner at the Hibernian in Cary on Saturday, May 24th? I did, but I just remembered today that I have not yet emailed him my "YES!"
If you can't find that email and need his email address, please contact me (Cathy) and I'll forward it on to you. Hope you can make it!
Joseph and Maria at Poulnabrone
It is with great sadness I pass on the news that Joseph Sie died while vacationing in Peru. He and Maria had been touring South America for the past few weeks, and were on their way to Machu Picchu.
Funeral arrangements will be posted here once they have been finalized.
Eternal rest grant unto him, o Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
Thanks to Bill and Jeanette for hosting our Ireland Reunion party last Friday,
and to everyone who contributed something delicious, shared photos
and took the time to catch up with each other!
If you have not yet seen our trip photo book, it is in the box outside Cathy's office.
And- looking forward, if you would like to find out about the September 2014
Pilgrimage to France, there will be an information meeting
on Saturday, November 2 from 4-5pm at St. Andrew's.
Do you have a few favorite Ireland photos you'd be willing to share? I'm about to put together a photo album, and would love to have some great shots from a variety of perspectives. If you don't want to mess with uploading to the shared shutterfly site, it's fine to just email them to me (adult_faith[at]saintandrew[dot]org), please.
And I think it's about time we got together for a reunion! Do either of the next two weekends (June 21 or 22, 28, 29 or 30) hold promise? Let me know your preferences, please!
St. Kevin's Church, Glendalough
Here is a poem Aine read as we approached Glendalough:
Trinity Church - Glendalough
I feel stones mortared with love.
Preserving, protecting A reminder of a people
Their dreams founded on love and things sacred.
I stand in awe between rolling hills
A Pilgrim, I walk slowly, searching, seeking
Finding that deep peace and a sense of God.
