It is known as “Stir up” Sunday by many because it was traditionally the day when homes began the mixing of the flour and fruits for Christmas puddings and cakes. The main reason for its name is from the opening two words of Sunday’s collect:

“Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people;…

From Sunday 27th November, we enter the season of Advent – a time when of preparation for the coming of Jesus Christ at Christmas. By now, it is very noticeable that the shops are deep into their form of ‘advent’. Perhaps, as Christians, we should be asking ourselves the question

St John's is a Church of Ireland Church (Anglican, Episcopalian).

The parish of Coolock is grouped with the Parish of Raheny - All Saints' Church.

These are two interesting churches – St John’s was built as a small country church, has 9thC artifacts, association with St Brendan and stained glass from Burne-Jones, Child, Purser and Meyers, while All Saints’ church is a magnificent ornate building, erected thanks to the generosity of Lord Ardilaun of the Guinness family.
