TWO CHAPELS TO BE OPENED AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL

first_imgTWO chapels – one Catholic and one non-Catholic – are to be opened at Letterkenny hospital.Following ongoing speculation regarding the plans for a Catholic Chapel at Letterkenny General Hospital, members of the Chaplaincy Team (Fr Martin Chambers, RC Chaplain; Ms. Kathleen Doherty, HSE Lay Chaplain; Rev Stewart Wright, COI Chaplain) met today and have issued the following statement:The Chaplaincy Team at Letterkenny General Hospital are delighted to confirm that in the spirit of Christian Unity all denominations will be fully accommodated in the new arrangements for public and private worship in the chapels which are to be created at the hospital. They have outlined that they feel positive about the new facilities and are hopeful that they will now be able to meet the spiritual needs of staff, patients and their families more effectively than they ever did before. The Chaplaincy Team have explained that these new arrangements will include a Catholic Chapel in which the Blessed Sacrament will be present and which will feature the symbols of Catholic faith such as a Tabernacle, Stations of the cross and statues which will be permanently displayed. There will also be an Ecumenical Chapel to cater for other Christian denominations including Church of Ireland, Presbyterian and Methodist Churches. A chaplain’s office and a quiet room for counselling will also be included. Currently members of the Muslim faith have access to a corridor in St Conal’s Hospital for Friday prayers and this arrangement will continue.The Team hope that this clarification will put an end to the unhelpful speculation and misinformation which has been in circulation and has been deeply upsetting for both them and those they minister to. They wish to acknowledge the trauma and distress which was caused to the entire community by the flood at the hospital which resulted in there being no designated area to worship and the Team being displaced so they had to struggle in difficult circumstances to minister to the needs of those under their care.The Chaplaincy Team have, however, been actively engaged in negotiations with hospital management and the design team to ensure that the difficulties which they have been encountered resulted in a positive outcome for all those who wish to worship and have their spiritual needs met within the hospital. They are confident that this partnership approach, has successfully achieved improved and enhanced facilities which will cater for all denominations. They have worked together to represent the views of the entire spiritual community who use the hospital which has been both challenging and rewarding. In doing so they have created accommodation which is superior in design and layout to what existed previously and which respect and honours the spiritual needs of all.The Chaplaincy Team are presently engaged in finalising the proposed layout of the new chapels. They look forward to welcoming all those they minister to in the coming months and they will continue to work to represent and meet their needs now and in the future.  TWO CHAPELS TO BE OPENED AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL was last modified: February 17th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:catholic chapelletterkenny hospitallast_img read more

Virgin long-haul flyers get their wish with cheap seat upgradeÂ

first_imgVirgin has become the first Australian airline to launch a local version of America’s popular “economy comfort” class, which allows travellers to trade up to a seat with more room without the premium economy price tag.It’s part of the overhaul of Virgin Australia’s daily trans-Pacific services from Brisbane and Sydney to Los Angeles on its Boeing 777-300ERs, which was announced on Monday.The revamp also affects VA’s three weekly services from Sydney to Abu Dhabi which it runs in conjunction with its part-owner Etihad Airways.At the front of the plane, VA business class has been totally redesigned into a “reverse herringbone” 1-2-1 seating arrangement that offers greater privacy, more legroom and aisle access for every seat, replacing the old seven-abreast forward-facing business class layout.Virgin says each seat now converts into a bed 80 inches (203 centimetres) long, compared with the old flat-bed seats of 77 inches (195 cms) per seat row.And the total number of business class seats has been increased from 33 to 37.Further down the cabin, the Virgin revamp reveals major changes in  consumer preferences. Premium economy changes its name to simply Premium, pitching itself as a budget business class rather than a trade-up from cattle class.That reflects the steep price premium over economy, typically $A1600 one-way from Sydney to Los Angeles compared with the best economy discount of $A600 or less. Business class is usually around $A2500 one-way.It turns out what Virgin’s economy passengers were clamouring for – like those in America – was not a business class experience, but a relatively inexpensive upgrade to a seat with a little extra legroom.So, while Premium gets an upgrade from 38 inches (96 cms) to 41 inches (104 cms) per seat row, the number of seats has been slashed from 40 to 24.The big news is that the airline has created a whole new class called Economy Space+ with a total of 67 seats – 47 of them in the one cabin, the rest further down the main cabin. The “pitch” per seat row is 34 inches (86 cms) compared with 32 inches (81 cms) in economy.Instead of paying double or triple the economy rate, the upgrade costs between $A135 and $165 per seat one-way between Australia and the USA, with perks thrown in such as check-in via a dedicated Premium check-in counter; pre-boarding; preferred overhead locker; dedicated crew members throughout the flight; guaranteed first meal choice; and Premium noise-cancelling headset. It’s similar to Virgin code-share partner Delta Airlines’ Comfort+, although Virgin insists that it developed its product independently in Australia.“We  felt – and certainly the conversations we’d had with customers were indicating – this was something that people would really want and value,” Australia Chief Customer Officer Mark Hassell told AirlineRatings.com. “It’s for people who don’t want to spend the money on premium economy, but are prepared to spend a little more money on greater exclusiveness and it’s a quieter cabin of just five rows. The reaction is very, very positive.”Meanwhile, the way the airline is pitching premium economy has changed. “It’s smaller, it’s more exclusive, it’s taken seat comfort to a new level and really the positioning is around business light rather than economy plus,” Hassell said.“That’s why we’ve flicked the ‘economy’ word from it – it’s ‘Premium’.”The Virgin Australia revamp means that there’ll be fewer seats on its 777-300ERs – until now one of the industry’s densest configurations with 361 seats. The new total number of seats per flights is 339.The new Virgin Australia 777-300ER seat maps are available here.last_img read more

Classaction lawsuit alleges systemic abuse at defunct private Christian school

first_imgA group of former students are set to take the private Christian school they attended to court next week, alleging in a class-action lawsuit that they were subjected to psychological abuse designed to erode their sense of safety.The certified class action, which has spent more than a decade winding its way through the legal system, will see five plaintiffs represent former residential students who attended Grenville Christian College in Brockville, Ont., between 1973 and 1997.“The conduct of the defendants … was calculated to produce harm and did, in fact, produce physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual harms,” the students’ statement of claim reads. “The defendants fostered an atmosphere of fear, intimidation, anxiety and suspicion.”The plaintiffs are suing the school and the estates of two of its former headmasters — Charles Farnsworth, who died in 2015, and J. Alastair Haig, who died in 2009 — along with some family members who also worked at the school for $200 million in damages for allegedly breaching their duty to take care of the students.The students allege they were cut off from communicating with their families, kept under constant surveillance and subjected to “exorcisms” and so-called “light sessions.”“Students were forced to confess sins, real or imagined, as the individual defendants and other staff members challenged and/or screamed at the students,” the statement of claim says. “Students were compelled to confess imagined sins and to betray other students.” Several students also alleged they were beaten with wooden paddles. The allegations have not been proven in court.The students were permanently affected by their treatment at the school, the court document said. Many of them still have poor self-esteem and difficulty trusting people.“For the plaintiffs and many of the class members, it’s about holding the school to account and making the public aware of child abuse to the view of preventing similar things in the future,” said Loretta Merritt, one of the lawyers representing the students.In its statement of defence, lawyers for the school said students weren’t cut off from their families and denied the allegations of exorcism and light sessions, saying that while some students were occasionally subjected to “corporal punishment in the form of a paddle,” it was only for the most serious breaches.The statement of defence says most students had a great experience at Grenville, which shut down in 2007.“Most certainly there would have been students over the years who experienced unhappiness from time to time at Grenville or who felt anxious or perceived that they were suffering humiliation. These, however, are ordinary human feelings,” the statement reads.“They were not the product of any negligent or deliberate infliction of mental suffering on the part of the plaintiffs.” Geoffrey Adair, a lawyer for the defendants, said the difference between students’ experiences is practically irreconcilable.“Some people present a picture of Grenville as a very rigid, harsh, abusive culture. Others think Grenville was an amazingly positive experience,” he said. “A court is going to have to decide which vision, if you will, or which view, is the fact and which is fiction.”The statement of defence also notes the amount of time that had elapsed since the alleged abuse.At the time that the lawsuit was initially filed in 2008, there was a time limit on reporting allegations of child abuse. Eight years later, while the case was inching forward in the legal system, Ontario changed its laws to eliminate the limit in those cases.But Adair notes that the amount of time that’s passed does still have an effect on the case — some things, such as corporal punishment, were more acceptable forty years ago than they are now.The courts, he noted, must look at the standards at the time.The initial class action also named the Anglican Diocese of Ontario as a defendant, because Farnsworth and Haig were ordained Anglican ministers and the school presented itself as Anglican.The diocese argued that in spite of those facts, the school was not officially affiliated with the religious institution, and the case against it was dropped.The trial is set to begin Monday if no settlement is reached by then.Nicole Thompson, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Senate House reach deal on longawaited farm bill

first_imgWASHINGTON — House and Senate negotiators have reached a deal on the multibillion-dollar farm bill after months of contentious talks.The tentative deal scraps a plan backed by House Republicans and President Donald Trump that would have added new work requirements for some food stamp recipients. Lawmakers expect to vote on the bill next week.Democrats and many Senate Republicans opposed the work requirements, the biggest stumbling block holding up an agreement. The impasse threatened to scuttle a bipartisan bill that sets federal agricultural and food policy for five years and provides more than $400 billion in farm subsidies, conservation programs and food aid for the poor.In a statement Thursday, House and Senate agriculture committee leaders say they have reached agreement but are working to finalize the bill’s language and costs.Matthew Daly And Juliet Linderman, The Associated Presslast_img read more

My loved ones shouldnt suffer Varun

first_imgMumbai: Just days after reports emerged that a fanatic fan of Varun Dhawan threatened his ladylove Natasha Dalal, the actor said his near and dear ones should not be paying a price due to his celebrity status. There has been a buzz that a female fan waited for hours to meet Varun outside his residence. Since the actor was busy, he did not step out, and that made the fan so angry that she started misbehaving and uttered: “I will kill Natasha”. According to reports, when the girl refused to leave, security officials informed the local police station. Asked about the incident, Varun said: “The police has got involved in the matter, so I will refrain from speaking on the incident. Keeping that aside, I am generally saying that it is a wrong thing. My loved ones should not have to pay any price because of my celebrity status.”last_img read more
