Ordination of Rev Elaine Pentland and Rev Andrew Orr

August 22nd, 2021|0 Comments

Very sincere congratulations to the Rev Elaine Pentland, and the Rev Andrew Orr on the occasion of their ordination to the order of deacon on Sunday 22nd August in our Cathedral. Elaine will serve as a deacon in Willowfield Parish and Andrew will serve his year as deacon in St John’s Parish, Orangefield.

The last service of ordination in our Cathedral was that of Rev Gary McMurray back in 2008, so it was wonderful to be able to host this very special service once more, at the request of our Bishop, the Rt Rev David McClay. We look forward to our Cathedral be asked to host similar significant Diocesan services in the years to come.

Parishes raise over £336k for Ukraine

The Church of Ireland’s Bishops’ Appeal has released an incredible £170,648 and €192,876 to support partner agencies in bringing humanitarian relief within Ukraine and in surrounding countries.

The total amount raised is equivalent to £336,428 of which Down and Dromore contributed £40,000.

Christian Aid Ireland has channelled funds into supplying hospitals with tens of thousands of medical kits and supplies, as well as providing large shipments of essential items both within Ukraine and to areas of concentrated refugees in neighbouring countries.

Habitat for Humanity Ireland has focused providing shelter in Poland and Romania, setting up tents with heating and electricity for short term stays as well as converting unused spaces in towns and cities into homes suitable for stays of approximately 6 months. They are also liaising with local Governments to place people in families and to support those who are journeying on to reach their destination safely.

A most recent funding release has donations channelled to Tearfund Ireland who are sending 76 shipments of essential food and non–food items to warehouses within Ukraine to be sent from there to support internally displaced people in multiple districts throughout the country. This will enable over 300,000 people meet their basic survival needs.

As millions flee and million more are displaced internally, the need for a response is great. The Church of Ireland is grateful to all those who have donated and to our key partners who are working tirelessly to bring hope and comfort at a time of such devastation and loss.

Bishops’ Appeal is the Church of Ireland’s overseas aid and development fund.

Dromore Cathedral

Sincere thanks to the many folks who gathered to hear Jude Graham speak of the work of Starfish Ukraine in matching Christian Ukranian refugees with Christians in NI.

It was a truly profound and deeply moving evening with many of us being moved to tears upon hearing of the plight of Ukranian families who have quite literally had to flee their homes and their homeland.

We are also indebted to local couple, Alison and David who spoke of their experience of hosting one such family in a family home which became available in the Dromore area.

Support for refugees is first and foremost crucial as we hold our brothers and sisters in prayer. But you could also volunteer, give or indeed be part of a hosting programme.

If you would like more information about how to become more involved, then please visit www.starfishukraine.com or contact the Rector on 07808844637.
