Message from Diocesan Youth Ministry

(1) The Parish of Bearna will celebrate a very special Mass for students on Tuesday May 29th at 7.30 pm.

The Mass will be led in song by the Folk Choir of Notre Dame University, South Bend, Indiana. (Home of The Fightin' Irish). 

The choir are visiting Galway as part of their tour of Ireland and Scotland. Just last Tuesday night, they performed an exciting programme of contemporary Liturgical music in the National Concert Hall in Dublin. 

All are welcome to come to Bearna Parish Church on Tuesday night and help "Keep the Candle Lit" for all those who are doing exams this June.

(2) The Parish of Ballybane is also preparing for a very special event. Fr Liam Lawton, composer and performer, is currently on a nationwide tour of Ireland and will be performing an intimate evening of songs and reflection in St. Brigid’s Church, Ballybane on Sunday 10th June 2012, in aid of Galway Hospice and Ballybane Bethany Bereavement Support Group. This concert will be Liam’s ONLY Galway performance on his tour and the concert is being organised as part of the 25th anniversary of the opening of St. Brigid’s Church in Ballybane. Tickets cost €20 and early purchase is strongly advised as there is always huge demand for Liam’s concerts. Tickets can be purchased from Nuala 087 6719951 or Marie 086 8122201. Tickets are also available at St Brigid’s Church after mass on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings.

All the details for both events can be located on the diocesan website.
Wishing both parishes all the best in their preparations for these two very special nights.
