Parish Banner.

The New Parish Banner which is to be kept in the Crypt of St. Mel’s Cathedral is now completed and has been displayed in both Parish Churches over the week end. The Banner which is in the Annaduff colours was designed by Father Wall and hand sewn by Maura Faughnan, Geraldine Duignan, Ruth Waller, Irene Daly, Nuala Kennedy, Ann Beirne and Colleen Guckian. The pictures of the Churches were transferred to the material and coated with special gloss by Sinead Guckian. The material used was unpicked  from old Parish vestments kindly dry cleaned by Maureen Quigley and dating back to  nineteen hundred and three and includes the Pelican and her nest of young ,the Celtic cross the, images of  the two Churches and the lettering of both. Each Parish in the Diocese is to have it’s own Banner in the crypt of St. Mel’s Cathedral to be used on Special occasions. Well done to all concerned on a wonderful piece of history being made and we look forward to walking  behind it in May.
