Welcome to Wicklow Parish. We do our best to practice a practical Christianity, founded on faith and prayer; doing our best to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our generation, and doing our best to contribute positively to the wider community.
Every year on the Sunday nearest 11 November, there is an Act of Remembrance at the 10am service in Wicklow Parish Church. This tradition started after the First World War, the first industrialised war, in which millions died in the slaughter house of trench warfare. We do not remember to sentimentalise war, nor to dwell on a colonial past. Although the tradition started after WW1, we remember all lives lost in the pursuit of freedom and safety for others - in the Armed Services, Peackeeping Forces, Gardaí, Rescue and Protection services. We acknowledge the sacrifice made by so many, and commit together for peace. As we mark the centenary of the end of WW1, we consider the causes of that particular war: the rise of nationalisms that wrecked a continent & ripped apart a generation. We consider the danger of allowing history to repeat itself. And we look to the future, committing to set aside our prejudices, and focus on the best interests of our shared humanity. All are welcome to attend the Remembrance Day service. ... See MoreSee Less
