A wonderful 19th Annual LBGT Christmas Carol Service in the Unitarian Church! Prayerful, joyful and intimate! 180 attended and raised €1,450 for Brother Kevin at the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People!

Michael Murphy (Broadcaster, Psychoanalyst and Author) was this years guest speaker. He read 5 of his poems which resonated strongly with the congregation:
1. The People of the Book
2. Devotion
3. A Vote for Love
4. A Poem for Terry
5. The Poppy

Brian Glennon is the driving force who makes it better and better each year. He selected the readings and lined up contributions from Transgender Equality Network Ireland, Dublin's Gay Hiking Club and BeLong To. Reverend Bridget Spain again welcomed all to the Dublin Unitarian Church. And of course the event would be awful without the Dublin Gay Men's Chorus who were magnificent! And we finished with mulled wine and mince pies with special thanks to The George.
