Carol Service - St Paul's, Cahir
The annual service of nine carols and lessons was held at St Paul's Cahir yesterday evening. Despite the change of night, to Friday from the usual Sunday, there was a good congregation. Cahir Choral Society sang. A presentation was made to The Revd Arthur Carter, now in his 86th year, who retired after 21 years in the non-stipendiary ministry and over 20 as a lay reader before that. It was a very ecumenical evening, with The Very Revd Tom Rogers, PP; The Revd William Montgomery, Presbyterian minister of Cahir and Fermoy, The Revd Matt Knight, CSSP Rockwell College and a representative of the local Egyptian Coptic Orthodox community also present.
