The Church is not a Venue!

Here in the vicarage, the summer season means that the Mhinisteir gets super busy with weddings. He was just telling me the other day that he is already booked up for summer 2025!

However, it is rather disappointing when wedding couples and their guests mistake the Church, a place of worship to a wedding venue. Wedding guests often leave our churches covered in litter like used tissues and sweetie wrappers which the poor church wardens who are volunteers spend hours cleaning up!
