300 years of worship in Loughinisland Parish Church
A long–awaited celebration took place in Loughinisland Parish Church, Seaforde, on St Macartan’s Day, Thursday 24th March, when the parish and community came together to celebrate over 300 years of worship in the building. The tercentenary celebration year was to be 2020, and a number of events were organised but the Covid pandemic meant that all but one had to be cancelled. It was with genuine joy and relief that people joined together for this much anticipated service at which two magnificent mosaics created by artist and parishioner Maeve King were dedicated. The mosaics were dedicated by the Bishop of Down and Dromore, the Rt Revd David McClay, and the preacher was the Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Revd John McDowell.
