The annual Nation Schools Service of TKA was held in Tuam early in November and Saint Mary’s Cathedral was thronged with children from all over the diocese. The service was led by Revd John Godfrey, curate of Galway, and Bishop Rooke with the address being given by Lydia Monds of Bishops’ Appeal assisted by Andy McCormick of CMS Ireland.
After the service, the first phase of TKA’s MABWENI project was launched with the imaginative ‘Potty Walk’ around the interior of the cathedral. This was to highlight the need for sanitary facilties at the Maasai girls school in Kenya which TKA is supporting and to promote the ‘Jam Jar Appeal’ which will run in TKA during Advent 2012 and Lent 2013.
