Pastoral Council

The Ballyroan Parish Pastoral Council was formed in 2002. It is a recognised structure within the Church concerned with the pastoral activities of parish life.
It is made up of a representative body of parishioners and must include the parish Priest or his delegate.

The objectives of the Council are:
•    Listen and respond to the hopes, ideas, needs and concern of parishioners and the people of God throughout the diocese.
•    Be a vibrant and visible group within the parish, working together and promoting meaningful parishioner involvement at all levels of parish life.
•    Reflect on and plan future directions for the parish and prioritise initiatives to be undertaken.
•    Provide the on-going formation, evaluation and training for Council members and existing groups in the parish.
•    Be a channel of communication within the parish and diocese.
•    Recognise work already done, affirm the contribution of those involved and celebrate the gifts and achievements of all parishioners.
Current pastoral council committee members



Like all good parishes there is a team involved in making sure the day to day parish office is running, the emails and phone calls are answered, the finances are kept in check, the monies are collected and the church is kept clean.  The following ministries are involved;



We are so lucky to have a team of Sacristans who open/close the church, and help at the various ceremonies during the year. Each volunteer takes responsibility for a day and they work together for holidays and other commitments etc. We do have a vacancy at present for one day as one of our group is currently doubling up. Don’t all volunteer at once !



Again a wonderful group who meet on Tuesdays to keep our beautiful church grounds in pristine condition. Simply call by and Tuesday after mass and meet the ‘lads’ and join up. Many hands make light work is so true.

Since the church opened in the late 1960’s, parishioners have always volunteered to clean the church. At present there is a group of about 5 people who clean the church at times of their own choosing, each taking a small area to be responsible for. Some of these have been involved since the beginning.  We are always looking for help!  Just come along on Tuesday morning about 10.30am. No experience necessary! Mop and bucket supplied.


There are many ways in which you can volunteer to help out, please contact Aine in the office for further details.
