A Word from Father Jim
On behalf of Dermot and myself I wish you all the peace and blessings for 2022. I want to add a special thank you for all the words of welcome, cards and gifts which made me feel totally at home for my first Christmas in Balally as your new priest. It is tragic and somewhat unbelievable that the scourge of Covid continues to stalk our world. While, thanks to our stewards, our church remains a safe area for worship, it is understandable that some prefer to watch online. There is a need however to gather and once we can do it safely we are blessed.
We are going ahead with the meeting of all those of you who are active in any of the many groups in the parish. It will take place on Wednesday next, January 12th from 7 to 8pmin in the church . Each group spokesperson will be invited to make a 1 to 2 minute presentation on their works and plans. I am so much looking forward to hearing their stories. In addition I hope that some of you who are not actively involved might hear this event as a call to service by the Lord. ALL WELCOME.
