Register of Vestrymen
The Church of Ireland is democratic in its decision making. At the Easter Vestry, members elect the Select Vestry each year and Parochial Nominators and Diocesan Synod Representatives every three years. Diocesan Synod elects our General Synod Representatives. If you are not on the Register of Vestrymen, you don’t have a say in the local, diocesan and national Church. The Register of Vestrymen will be revised on Tuesday 21st January, and is open to all aged 18 and over who attend and have subscribed at least £50 to church funds in the last calendar year. Forms are available from the Rector and Churchwardens.

The Pantry (A Helping Hand)
Thank you for your continued support for the new foodbank in Lisnaskea. Your donations have helped over 20 families already, with more families coming forward.
