The African Chaplaincy of the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin held its annual picnic recently in the capital’s Phoenix Park. 

The event, which was organised by the young members of the chaplaincy’s Catholic Youth Organisation, was attended by several families from across the chaplaincy’s seven centres in Phibsborough, Clondalkin, Lucan, Tallaght, Blanchardstown, Swords and Balbriggan. 

Prayer and community were the purpose of the day. But fun was also on the agenda, with one highlight being the tug of war between parents and children, which was won by the former – prompting much good-humoured bragging around the barbecue. 

The same parents were also full of praise for the younger community members for organising the day, which promises to be bigger and better next year. 

Father Cornelius Nwaogwugwu, chaplain of the African Chaplaincy, brought the picnic to a close with words of appreciation and commendations to the participants, especially the young organisers.
