Lighting up St. Peters

Dublin Lord Mayor Nial Ring, started off the advent festivities at St.Peters’ by lighting the Christmas Tree at the Church entrance. The event, a first for St. Peter’s also saw the Church bathed in red light which will remain until the 6th January.

Remarking on the blessing which preceded the lighting up ceremony, the Lord Mayor observed that it was the first such blessing he had witnessed at a lighting up ceremony in the city and was an important reminder of what Christmas is actually about.

He also said he would return again tomorrow
for
Nollaig Bhaile Phib,
the Annual Christmas Fayre at St. Peter’s.
