Our Church looks resplendent under a rainbow in the summer sunshine.
Glasnevin Grouping of Parishes are organising a week of Guided Prayer, commencing, here in Ballygall, on June 11th. This is a retreat with a difference, sometimes called ‘Retreat in Daily Life’ or a ‘Busy Person’s Retreat’. There will be individual and group sessions and Prayer Guides will be available. The prayer guides are lay men and women, religious sisters, brothers and priests who are trained and qualified in spiritual guidance and experienced at helping people in their prayer life.
Next weekend a speaker from the office of Evangelisation will be at Masses in Ballygall to speak with us and to answer questions. Places will be limited so immediate registration is essential.
