For the second walk of 2017 Frank Tracy has kindly offered to lead the group on a talk/walk tour of the Glendalough monastic sites on Saturday 17th June. They will meet up at the Glendalough Hotel at 10:30 for coffee followed by 11 o’clock start. Although there are quite a few sites to be visited the distance to be covered is not great and the walk should conclude (including a break for lunch) at 4pm.
The club greatly enjoys welcoming new members.
Facilitator – Jennifer Flegg
The Film Club meets in the Lantern Centre on Synge Street on the first Wednesday of the month (in this case 7th June) where they enjoy watching a film with good company and a cup of tea. 7.15pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.
This month they will watch Le Quattro Volte, an idiosyncratic and amazing film by Michelangelo Frammartino, nearly every shot contains a revelation, sneaky or overt, cosmic or mundane — It is set in remote valley in the southern Italian region of Calabria and is told in four chapters — “The Four Times” of the title. Told through the events surrounding an old man, a young goat, a tree and a batch of charcoal. Only at the end do we grasp the epic scope and lyrical depth of what we have seen. A film told without dialogue it becomes a meditation on life and of living.
Facilitator – Aubrey Flegg
The church has also recently unveiled a new greeting card featuring a sketch of the church by longtime congregation member George McCaw. This can be purchased in the church after service or online.
The cards, as well as other books of sermons and childrens stories published by the church are available from the website and we take payment through Paypal.
