A message from Monsignor Gearoid

Dear People of Ballinlough,
I want to take this opportunity to wish each and every one
of you grace and peace this Christmas. Despite challenging
circumstances because of the COVID-19 restrictions, you
have made Ballinlough parish “happen”.
At this special time of the year I also want to thank so
many people who contribute in a particular way to the
functioning of our parish. To our Sacristans, parish
secretary, Ministers of the Eucharist, Readers, those who
look after the flowers and decorating of the church, church cleaners, parish
finance committee, people who distribute dues envelopes, our parish schools
and so many others. I want to pay a special tribute to our Covid stewards
who work to ensure our safe gatherings in the church. Your work is very
much appreciated.
Since last September we have had Reverend Ronan Sheehan as a deacon
serving in the parish. I want to acknowledge his presence and ministry
among us and thank him: his work in the schools, his visitation of the
housebound, his links with the local conference of St Vincent de Paul, and his
preaching and contribution to the liturgy. We are deeply grateful and we
assure Ronan of our prayers for the next phase of his preparation for
ordination to the priesthood. Míle buíochas.
