Dear People of Ballinlough,
I want to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you grace and peace this Christmas, 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 Sacristan, parish Secretary, Ministers of the Eucharist, Readers, those who look after the flowers and decorating of the church, church cleaners, parish finance committee, funeral ministry team, people who distribute dues envelopes, our parish schools and so many others.
I want to take this opportunity to renew our welcome to Canon Michael Murphy and to thank him sincerely for his ministry in Ballinlough.
May I wish all our parishioners, a blessed and safe Christmas and the graces of the Christ child to sustain us in 2023.
Beannachtaí Na Nollaig,
Monsignor Gearóid Dullea.
