The Ballyroan Harvest Fayre was held on Sunday 15th September and despite the weather it was a great success.
After the 12.00 Mass on Sunday 4th August at which Fr. Marco celebrated, there was a small parish party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Fr. Marco\'s priesthood.
lt is not often that a priest can say that he was ordained by a future canonised saint. Fr Marco was ordained by Pope John Paul II during the summer of 1988.
Ad multos annos, Marco
Christmas is a time when we remember our families both living and dead. This year we sold Poinsettias in ceramic pots with a portion of the proceeds going to the Ballyroan Faith and Justice Street Sleepers and the SVdeP.
Each plant had the name of the family on it and was placed on the altar all over the Christmas period. In this way the families were prayed for and remembered during the Masses and also by all the parishioners in the Congregation.
The annual Harvest Fayre was held on the grounds of Ballyroan Parish Church on Sunday 16th September
