Wednesday, 25th September, was a significant day in the life of our parish as the light on the roof cross was relit after many years. This cross was seen day and night all over the city of Cork – until it fell into disrepair about 15 years ago. It was, and remains, a reminder that Jesus, the Saviour, offers his protection and blessings on this city and on its people. We thank those who petitioned over the years for the cross-light to be restored. The removal of trees earlier already made the building the central landmark looking north from any part of the city.
Work is now well underway on church roof at Gurranabraher after a slow start in April – due to inclement weather. With the arrival of bright, sunny days work progresses – and Consultant Engineers report that the work is up to schedule. The completion date is September ending.
