Walk Number 25

All-Ireland Mothers' Union
Published by Margaret Jacob in Latest News · 6 September 2021
June has now finished two thirds of her walks and, after a short respite, is starting the final dozen.  Her 25th walk took place on a dull but dry day in the centre of the Diocese of Meath and Kildare – at the Curragh.
The afternoon began at St Patrick’s Church in Newbridge  where the  MU Diocesan Chaplain, Rev’d  Ruth O’Kelly, led over 20 members in a short service of thanksgiving.  Bishop Pat Storey gave a short, very poignant reflection based on Psalm 46 and, after the service  concluded, June spoke for a few moments about Mums in May and the commemoration services for the life and witness of Annabella Hayes which had been held in Dublin a fortnight earlier.  Present also was the rector, the Very Rev’d Tim Wright and his wife, Karen. Everyone who attended the service took time for tea and fellowship on the steps of the church afterwards,  before driving the short distance to the Curragh to begin the walk.
