From the Rector

Dear Parishioners,
Summer
I hope all our readers had a restful and enjoyable Summer. As things return to
normal and a new term begins may I draw your attention to the wide range of
activities and events taking place in the parish (full details within).
New housing
Over the Summer over 200 new houses and apartments in Killiney parish
received an information letter containing a brochure about the parish and a
packet of welcome seeds. This is an important part of our outreach to the
wider community. Thank you to those members of the Select Vestry who
assisted the Rector in this project.
Finally
It is with mixed emotions that I inform you that the Bishop of Limerick has
appointed me Incumbent of the Limerick City Group of Parishes and Dean of St
Marys Cathedral. It is likely that we will be moving there in October. Please be
assured that during the vacancy here the appropriate liturgical and pastoral cover
will be provided. Please remember the Parochial Nominators at this time who
will shortly begin the task of finding my successor. At times like this that words
are inadequate to articulate that many thoughts and feelings of the Rectory. We
will leave Killiney with many, many happy and joyous memories. There will be a
suitable opportunity in the future to say our farewells; however, for the moment
I remain your Rector and ask that you continue to pray for Karen, Evelyn and I
as we journey through the weeks ahead.

With every good wish,

Snapshot reflections on General Synod

At the meeting of the Church of Ireland General Synod held in Limerick in May
the story was told of a lay member who was sharing a coffee-break with two
others and asked one of them where he was from. Born a Welshman, he
replied, brought up a Welshman. And Ill die a Welshman. Och, man, said the
third quietly, have ye no ambition?
Individually, especially perhaps when the weather is good, most of us can love
our fellow men but when faced with challenge we tend to close ranks,
sometimes at the expense of thought, intelligence and compassion.
A reasonable motion, moderately phrased and thoughtfully presented asking the
bishops to investigate a means to develop sensitive, local pastoral arrangements
for public prayer and thanksgiving with same sex coupleswho enter
intolegally-recognised same sex relationships was defeated by 56% of the
clergy and 53% of the laity. 346 voted including 24 who chose to abstain; the
bishops were exempted from the process.
Greater optimism perhaps exists for the resolution of the possibility of
combining the dioceses of Limerick & Killaloe and Tuam, Killala & Achonry with
three options invited in the passing of a related Synod Motion. Difficulties, some
of the devil of which is in the detail, abound but the over-ruling impression was
that of active goodwill, especially among the bishops concerned, reflecting
perhaps the suggestion of our guest the Roman Catholic Bishop of Limerick that
we should all look at the Cross as well as at our plans, a thought which seems
also to have struck the proposer of the first-mentioned motion who had asked
us, What would Jesus do?
The decade of commemoration to date has been ably handled by the Government. Sad
stories keep emerging; of the British army officer who was obliged to act on advice not to
attend his sisters wedding for which he had returned home; about the local WW1
memorial with only five names on it though 91 from the area had lost their lives but only
four or five families had contributed to the cost

20
Snapshot reflections on General Synod

To-day when were not being squeezed into boxes we in this country are blessed
in our diversity of free thought in the light of our growing multi-culturalism, one
speaker reminding us that Gods ambition for each of us is greater, deeper,
wider and in many cases quite possibly different from our own.
Patrick Comerford spoke movingly of his translation to Rathkeale with its high
proportion of traveller families, where he has come to be regarded as a priest in
the general sense rather than specifically as a C of I cleric. In Durrus the sharing
of Christian Services is a feature of local life and in Portlaoise an inter-faith group
including Muslim, Hindu and Jewish communities has been initiated by Brian
ORourke where hard questions are asked and addressed.
The media plays a major part in persuading us that we live in an increasingly
secular world, but inescapably we are all the spiritual inheritors of Saint Patrick
who first came to Ireland as a slave by no means a refugee seeking shelter, or
an immigrant, let alone an invader, or a tourist . Archbishop Jackson told us that
later in the year he will accompany to Jerusalem the Lord Mayor of Dublin who
has devised an Inter-Faith Charter the first city in the world to do so. Perhaps
this suggests that whatever we think of religion we remain a spiritual people,
never mind the statistics, and a people of faith with however small an f and
whatever the word means to each one of us.

Church of Ireland Communications Competition 2017
Holy Trinity (www.htkilliney.dublin.anglican.org) was delighted to win 1st place in the
Parish Website category of the 2017 Communications Competition. The prize was
awarded to the parish at this years General Synod in Limerick. Winner: Holy Trinity
Killiney. The Judges noted that The quality of presentation is excellent: warm and
inviting with a good welcome to introduce the church and a good balance of people and
buildings/geography. The content is helpful and informative and it is easy to navigate. In
terms of outreach potential it provides a strong invitation.

Walking the Camino

On a wet and windy November evening in 2013, I found myself with my wife and
some friends in the Spanish Institute in Lincoln Place. We were at an
introductory talk about walking The Way of St James, the ancient pilgrim path
from St Jean Pied de Port in the French Pyrenees to Santiago in Galicia on the
West Coast of Spain, otherwise known as Camino Frances. The talk was being
given by a good friend of mine, Brian Hunt, who had recently set up a small
business, bringing and guiding small groups on selected stages of the Camino*.

The following May a group of 12, with Brian as our guide walked 100km in
wonderful weather from Pamplona to Logrono. Hills , Tracks, Ancient Roman
Paths, tasty tapas and fine Navarra wine. I was hooked!

A year later it was with trepidation and excitement after a night in a communal
hostel in Orisson that a group of 8 of us faced into a wet and foggy morning to
climb over the Pyrenees. The Way follows mountain trails across the French /
Spanish border and drops down towards Pamplona on the other side, famous
for Bull Running and Ernest Hemingway. Dense fog and continual rain all day did
not dampen our enthusiasm. We reached our destination that afternoon soaked
wet and freezing cold still it stands out as one of the most exhilarating days of 4
years of Camino walking.

The Camino is 800 km long. Many people walk it in one go, taking about 6
weeks to complete. We as a group took a more leisurely 4 years starting off
each year where we had finished previously.

The history of The Camino goes back to early Christian times when St James
sailed to Galicia to commence his ministry. Unfortunately, after his return to
Jerusalem, he was beheaded by King Herod in AD 42. His martyrdom and the

23
Walking the Camino

return of his body to Santiago led to the start of the city becoming a pilgrim
destination as important as Rome or Jerusalem.

People walk The Camino for a variety of reasons. We met some wonderful
pilgrims,walkers and tourists over the years; from the Danish student who sang
Irish songs and danced his way to Burgos
with us after his mother despatched him
to settle down before college to a lovely
New Yorker who had only recently lost
her husband, who celebrated her 60th
birthday in a Santiago restaurant with our
group earlier this year. You meet a great
variety of people on The Way. There is
time for great conversation or quiet
contemplation to consider the spiritual
reasons for pilgrimage.

Our Group, who proudly received our


Compostella, the traditional certificate of
pilgrimage, after showing our stamp filled
Camino passports to the Cathedral
authorities last May have monthly walks,
do long distance hikes around Ireland and
are already planning further European long
distance walking for 2018. We hardly knew each other before the Camino but
are now the best of friends.

unable to attend (due to the Fete), Dean Victor Stacey represented him and the
parish. Archbishop Jackson said of Blessed John Sullivan, that he had a special
place in the hearts of all of us who are members of the Church of Ireland. He
said the day was one of celebration and joy. We mark with the Jesuit Order in
Ireland and worldwide, along with the Christian Church everywhere, the
beatification in the Roman Catholic tradition of John Sullivan SJ. We do so
mindful of the unending need for reconciliation in Ireland and expectant of the
abundant grace of God.
