Following the Rainbows for Railings Initiative on the railings outside the Church, the rainbows are now on display inside. The display has been painstakingly created for us by two wonderful parishioners, Michael Douglas Fernandes and Michael O'Reilly. Many thanks to both. The finished display with its beauty, dedication and creativity is worth seeing so please have a look when you are next in the Church. In the meantime. please admire these photos of their work. Many thanks once again to the children and adults who made the rainbows - you have lifted all our spirits during the coronavirus pandemic.

St. Teresa’s Church is displaying rainbows created by local parishioners and friends to cheer up those who pass by during the COVID-19 restrictions. The rainbow is a sign of beauty and peace that comes after a storm, it also reminds us of the story of Noah and the Ark and how God made a promise to protect his people always. Please feel free to add your own Rainbow to the Railings by leaving it in the Church, dropping it into the parish house or hanging it up yourself as you pass by. You can also email a photo of your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com or Facebook it or WhatsApp it to our Parish Pastoral Assistant Sam Byrne (number on request) and we can print it and hang it for you! These are some of the rainbows which have been received to date.
