CLB 2018 NEWS
Anniversaries has been a recent theme. On the 30th September members attended the Brigade's 125th Anniversary Service in St Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh. Then on Remembrance Day, marking the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice, the CLB and CGB were represented at the Parish's Act of Remembrance. In the afternoon four girls from Carnmoney CGB, along with four lads from St Paul's CLB, Lisburn, represented the Ulster Regiment at the Remembrance Service in St Anne's Cathedral, Belfast, when Prince Andrew was the special guest.
The Enrolment Service was on the 18th November when several new members were enrolled. The Brigade turned out in numbers not seen for a long time showing that it is enjoying something of a revival. Strength at present - Officers, Lads and Girls - is 40 members. Our new Chaplain, Rev Andy Heber, and Curate, Rev Carol Harvey, were presented with the Brigade's 125th Anniversary Medal. We thank them for their contribution to our Enrolment Service.
The leaders would like to thank the lads and girls who provided a Guard of Honour for Rev Andy Heber, the Bishop of Connor and other clergy, on the night of Rev Heber's installation as the new vicar for Carnmoney Parish, 18th October.
