Gaeilge


Cairde ó Eaglais Presbitéireach an Trá ar Chuairt.


Dúirt stiúrthóir Forbairt Feirste, Jake MacSiacais, go raibh áthas an domhain air sean chara de chuid na Ceathrún Gaeltachta a fheiceáil ar ais agus cairde óna phobal féin in éineacht leis. Tháinig  Tomás, chuig an Cultúrlann i bhfad siad i 1991 nuair a chéad fosclaíodh an áit. Baisteadh Tomás féin anseo nuair a bhí sé ina Eaglais.


Tá Tomás gaolta air Jim Stothers, Leas-Cléireach Tionól na bPresbitéireach in Éireann. Fear é Jim féin a raibh an-suim aige i stair na hEaglaise agus an ról a bhí ag Presbitéirigh i gcúrsaí Ghaeilge.


Ar a chuairt inniú, 30ú Iúil, bhí lúcháir air griangraf a fháil leis an Bhíobla a bhronnadh ar an Eaglais ar lá a oscailte 27ú Meán Fómhair 1896, agus chun cluinsteán faoi na pleananna atá ag Forbairt Feirste chun cuireadh a thabhairt do Phresbitéirigh chun páirt a ghlacadh i dtionscadal dar teideal Ceiliúradh Chomchúraime a lainseáil.

Friends from the East.

Forbairt Feirste director, Jake MacSiacais has said he was absolutely delighted that an old friend, Tomas Stothers, had returned to the Gaeltacht Quarter after a recent visit bringing other members of his congregation with him. Tomás, a relative of Jim Stothers, the Deputy Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, first visited Cultúrlann when it opened way back in 1991. He was himself baptised in Broadway. Jim, of course, is a man himself with a huge interest in the history of the Church and of the role played by Presbyterians in preserving Gaelic.


Returning today, July 30th, he was delighted to have the opportunity to be photographed with the original Church Bible presented on the opening of the Church on September 27th 1896 and to hear of Forbairt Feirste’s plans to invite Presbyterians to join in a project entitled Celebrating Custodianship.
