November is a month when we remember all our dead. A mass for all the deceased parishioners will be held at 7.30pm on Friday 8th November. All are welcome. The Altar List of the Dead envelopes are ready to be delivered, if you are available to help distribute them, please enquire in the sacristy.
Now that the summer holidays have ended Mass times will be back to normal here in Ballygall. 10.30am Mass has resumed this weekend and Tuesday mornings will resume on 3rd. However, with Fr Paddy Jones retiring in Iona Road, this means that there will be a reduced Mass service in the grouping of parishes. The representatives of the 5 PPC’s met recently and a number of suggestions were put out for consideration by the different PPC’s. Our own PPC meet on Wednesday and this will be high on our agenda.
Greatest man in history. Had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime.. Yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. His name is Jesus.

No, it is not yet the Christmas season!
But perhaps it is the time for all of us to reflect on how we can support and participate more full in our parish liturgies.
