Previous Family Events

Martinmas Lantern Walk 

Date: Friday 11th November
Time: 5 – 6pm with hot chocolate afterwards in The Hub until 6.30pm
Place: Meet at Barna Church car park at 5pm

Join the pupils of the Galway Steiner National School in Knocknacarra on their Martinmass Lantern Walk through Barna woods on Friday 11th November. This is a truly beautiful sight as the young children meander through the dark woods carrying homemade lanterns. The little flames symbolise the power of light as the darkness of winter encroaches.
This year the children and parents hope to raise money for the Galway Simon Community and those who are especially feeling the darkness this year. Lanterns will be on sale to those who wish to join the procession. Afterwards, you are invited to share in some hot chocolate in the Youth Hub beside Barna Church.
