Advent Healing Service – 13th December

Get Poster here

Christmas is not always a happy time for people and often burdens we carry can
feel worse at a time when there is so much stress and expectation of happiness.
This simple and welcoming service offers and opportunity to come together and
place our worries and concerns in the empty manager and invite Jesus to come into
our lives with His healing presence. Petitions for prayers may be written and left in
our petition box placed on the Sanctuary. All these intentions will be prayed for
during our healing service. It is our hope that all will leave feeling blessed, supported and
stronger for the Christmas Season


If you would like to greet your family members who are living overseas, during our Christmas Masses and WebCam Broadcast, please leave their Names/Town/Country in the Parish Office. 018369291.
They will be welcomed through our internet broadcasts on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day before our Masses begin.

Au Revoir to Sister Irene

On Saturday August 12th, the Congregation of Ballygall and Glasnevin Grouping got together to bid Au Revoir to our dear Friend and Colleague Sr. Irene, as she heads to her new Role in Bonnybrook Parish.  At 6.30 Mass, Fathers Joe and Harry were joined by Fr. Richard and Fr. Damien as they concelebrated a special Mass to honour Sr. Irene’s long and fruitful ministry in Ballygall.  
Breda O Doherty, Chairperson  of Ballygall PPC, paid tribute to Sr. Irene’s great contribution and dedication to Ballygall Parish.
Gifts were presented by Breda, Kay, Sadie and Fr. Richard. The children of the parish were represented by Morgan, James and Lee McCluskey who presented a specially commissioned card, made by Patrick from the Website team.   A celebration cake was cut and everyone got together for a cuppa and a chat with our guest of honour. 
We wish Sr. Irene good luck and good health in her new role.  We will miss you.
