Ballygall Parish celebrates its 60th Anniversary 1964 – 2024
Some members of the parish met on Thursday with a view to arranging celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of the birth of Our Mother of Divine Grace Parish in 1964. A further meeting was called for to begin preparations for this great event. This meeting will take place on Thursday 22nd February at 7.30pm in the meeting room to the rear of the church. You are invited to attend to share ideas and suggestions to make it an event worthy of the parish and its people. Prayer, memories of past events, dreams for the future, how we as a parish could mark this milestone were topics discussed. We need your help in making this a worthy celebration of our great parish. Come along you are all welcome.
