Design a logo for St Anne's church 150th anniversary

posted Nov 10, 2017, 2:49 AM by Bohernabreena Parish Administrator   [ updated Nov 10, 2017, 2:51 AM ]

What inspires you when you think of the church on the hill, serving the community for 150 years? Is it a symbol from the daily life of the church – water, a cross, a candle? Is it people gathering together to celebrate the sacraments, week after week, whatever else is going on? Is it the location of the church, the countryside church on the edge of the city?
There’s lots of scope for design and creativity here, so please do join in and create a logo. All submissions are welcome, and will be displayed in Roseanna Hall in December.

We would like to congratulate all our young parishioners who received their leaving certificate results during the week and ask parishioners to remember them in their prayers as they start this new exciting stage of their lives. 

We also sadly ask parishioners to pray for the family of a young man, Mohammed Alrawehneh, from Ferncourt who sat his leaving cert this year but who died while on holiday in Jordan during July.  May God look after them at this dreadful time and may Mohammed rest in peace.
