World War I

Pausing to remember . . .

It is more than a hundred years since St Canice’s began seeing some of its community going off to war. We of the later generations have been presented daily with messages about the impact of that war and how the challenge was handled, through four striking windows in the transept of our church.

Anzac Day – Sharing Our Story

Sharing the Story - It is more than a hundred years since St Canice’s, (then just twenty-five years-old in 1914), began seeing some of its members going off to war. We of the later generations have been presented daily with messages about the impact of that war and how the challenge was handled, through four striking windows in the transept of our church. These windows, installed around 1920,are in a notably beautiful area of St Canice’s, which today, creatively, carries relics of our own dead.
