A special service of readings, poetry music and prayers will be held in Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral on Sunday 10th June at 3.30pm. The theme of the service will be ‘Caring for God’s Creation’ and will focus not only on the importance of our waterways but also on humanity’s responsibility for them and the whole of Creation.
The central focus of the service will be on the Pure Drop brought down river from Gouganne Barra to the Cathedral during the preceding week.
The music, led by the historic Cathedral Choir accompanied by the Cathedral Organ (the largest in Ireland), will include a piece entitled ‘Flow Water’ by Damien Kehoe, an organ voluntary from Handel’s Water Music. Additional reflective music (guitar) will be provided by Cork musicians Rianoir.
The service will include appropriate Bible readings, alongside poems by Mark Boyden and David Jackson. It is hoped that people from all over Cork County and City will gather for this special service, particularly those who have involvement with or responsibility for the care of the River Lee and our other waterways.
