The Calry Harvest Thanksgiving will be on Sunday 4th October at 6 pm. We trust that it will be a wonderful occasion but there will be no Harvest Supper afterwards and obviously we will have to keep to our limit on numbers.

Easter General Vestry

The Bishop has requested that all parishes hold their much delayed Easter General Vestry in this season. Calry’s is due to take place on Thursday 8th October at 8.00 pm in Calry Church. It will begin with a service called the Late Evening Office. This is a public event and an opportunity to elect and appoint all those who will serve as church officers both at parish and diocesan level. This year is a triennial election, so parochial nominators and appointments to diocesan synod will also be decided. Only members of the Calry General Vestry can vote. If you are not currently a member and wish to become one please speak to the Rector or one of the church wardens.


Thank you to everyone who gives financially to support the ministry of Calry. There is no collection under the Covid-19 restrictions but two offertory boxes are available in church if you want to give cash or cheques. Calry depends heavily on the giving of regular worshippers.


Prayer Support

If you would like prayer for yourself or a situation you are concerned about please contact the prayer team by emailing prayer@calry.ie



Please note our services are being live-streamed on Facebook and the website www.calry.ie Only those in the area between the lectern and the Lord’s Table from 11 am will be visible on screen.
