Bible Study
Fr Cremin will give a short talk on a selected Bible passage on each of the first two Monday nights of Advent; Dec 2nd, 9th, 15th from 8.00 to 8.45 in the church. This is intended to test the level of interest there would be in a more developed course or to give people an incentive to take part in the Diocesan programmes which are offered from time to time in West Cork.
