On Wednesday 21st March at 8.00pm, in place of our usual format of Lenten Service and our regular Mothers’ Union meeting, we will be welcoming Voice of Recovery to Colebrooke parish hall. Voice of Recovery will be telling their story of helping those with addiction overcome their struggle through poetry and music. Following is an extract from their Facebook page: “Voice of Recovery are a singing group of people in recovery from addiction. Some of them met through a rehab centre in Newry, Co Down, through a series of singing workshops that were initiated by the Arts Council Northern Ireland. Their performances are deeply moving, and they tell the story of addiction to recovery through the creative arts of poetry, music and composition. They are a committed group of people who have found their victory song and their musical voice encourages others who struggle with addiction to do the same. Their Musical Director is Sheila Smyth from The Right Key CIC. Sheila is a composer, musician and music teacher. Voice of Recovery have performed at health conferences, theatres and concert halls both at home, Belfast, London, Cardiff and Astros in Greece. They have been instrumental in challenging the stigma of addiction within the UK. Their story encourages others to move from weakness into strength. Their courage in going public with their recovery, has made them true heroes, and earned them respect at every performance. They give people hope, that they too can be free from the prison of addiction.”
This evening is open to everyone and there will be no price of admission. Donations may be received to help with this very worthwhile ongoing work

Over the past year Holy Trinity Cooneen have been carrying out a series of improvements to both the hall and church buildings. Both buildings have been fully rewired. Cooneen church has had the sound system and speakers improved and also a complete set of interior lighting installed, as the existing was beyond repair.
To mark these improvements, we will be holding a service of thanksgiving where these gifts will be dedicated for use in the worship and praise of almight God.
This service will be on Sunday 2nd April 2017 at 3pm, and will be followed by tea and refreshments in the parish hall.
‘Some aspects of the Reformation’
The Bishop of Clogher will travel around three venues across the Clogher Diocese to address
parishioners in an informal manner. In 2017 many Christians will be commemorating the anniversary of the Reformation in Germany.
As Luther discovered himself reconciled to Christ by faith, we remember that God has reconciled us through Jesus Christ whose love compels us to be ministers of reconciliation.
Everyone is welcome and as same talk will be given in all three venues, you are invited to attend the closest or most suitable venue.
