To mark World Cancer Day (on 4 February 2019), and to raise funds for the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation, a Scottish/Irish Cèilidh is being organised on Saturday 2 February 2018 from 19:00 at the Centre Cultural Altrimenti (5 Avenue Marie-Therese, Luxembourg-ville).
The 2019 Dance Against Cancer Cèilidh is the third such event held in the Grand Duchy, with €2,051.60 raised in 2018 for the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation.
Following the success of previous events in 2017 and 2018, the traditional Irish band Kitchen Quartet will again provide the music, with a dance caller organising those on the dance floor who may not know the various dances. The Luxembourg Pipe Band will also perform.
A cash bar will be in operation. All money raised will be donated to the Cancer Foundation
Tickets €12 from http://urquhart.lu/relais or at the door (subject to availability)

The Pope’s widely acclaimed encyclical Laudato Si is a call to all Christian communities, indeed to all people of good will, to care for the environment, our ‘sister Earth’. We should do so, not merely because human life depends on it, but also because our environment, in all its huge abundance and incredible diversity, is God’s loved creation.
Starting with a small group who studied and were inspired by Laudato Si, the English Speaking Community of the Parish of Notre Dame, encourages care of our environment both through the witness of small practical steps that are within our reach and by joining the wider Christian community in prayer and worship.
We work closely with the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) Group of the Anglican community here in Luxembourg. The title of this group underlines that environmental issues and those of social justice are inextricably linked – a point repeatedly emphasised by Pope Francis in Laudato Si.
More details of the Laudato Si Group can be found (and will be posted) on their dedicated webpage https://catholic.lu/outreach/laudato-si-group/
