St. John’s Parish Pastoral Council are planning a new Stained Glass Window in the church on the theme of Reconciliation and are seeking the support of parishioners and friends of Tralee at home and abroad. The window is being commissioned to coincide with the Tralee 800 celebrations in 2016. The artist is Tom Denny, of Tralee Denny family and a famous stained glass artist, who is giving his services as a contribution to the project. The central themes are reconciliation, healing and renewal. It will be the first stained glass window to be installed in St. Johns in over 60 years. A fundraising drive seeking to raise €20,000 was launched over the weekend of August 14-
16th. Donations from individuals and businesses are welcome. Donation envelopes are available at the back of the Church and can be returned to St. John’s Parish Centre.
In many ways the life, the word and the message of Jesus Christ can be difficult to comprehend. But give way to your incredulity and accept Jesus as he who came with the message of eternal life. Give way to doubt, fear and insecurity and believe in the Lord your God. Do not desert Him as he will never abandon you..... (St John’s Social Justice and Peace Committee).
