Last Light ServiceLast Light Service on 31 December 2015 at 3.30 pm.
The Last Light Service is a traditional service to celebrate the ending of the old year and the arrival of the new. It is a particularly meaningful service for us in the West of Ireland. Our position on the western edge of Europe means that Mayo’s Atlantic seaboard is one of the very last places in Europe to witness the final traces of this year’s daylight melting into the darkness of the last evening of the old year. It is also a poignant event which symbolises the comforts and familiarity of the old year giving way to the nervousness and uncertainties of the new. This is an ecumenical service and normally takes place in the Croagh Patrick Car Park outside the Murrisk Community Centre on the last day of the year, New Year’s Eve commencing at around 3.30 pm
Meet in the Murrisk Community Centre at 3.30 pm on Thursday 31 December 2015. Service will be held outside - weather permitting. Otherwise it will be in the Centre. Refeshments and ample car parking! All are welcome.
