Pastoral Council 2014/2015

At its recent meeting the Council decided to:-

  • Celebrate the Annual Day of Thanksgiving for those baptised in the parish during last year –  on Sunday April 26th in Belcarra Church. 

  • Have an Appreciation Day for the Sacrament of Marriage on the weekend of September 26th/27th at both Masses.

  • Look at ways of developing more youth involvement in the life of the parish. Our Diocesan Youth Officer Siobhan Bradley attended  the meeting and offered some very positive suggestions.

  • The parish has been invited to submit an article for the next issue of New Dawn (The Diocesan Magazine) about our parish website.

Ballintubber Abbey celebrates the 27th Anniversary of the Passion Play

For the past Twenty Six years those who have witnessed this moving drama have been stirred by the story as it is portrayed by the people of Ballintubber. Many have come back year after year to experience it and have brought others with them. If you have not seen it perhaps you would spare 1 hour on Monday 30th, Tuesday 31st March and Wednesday 1st April at 9.00pmto witness this drama. As it takes place outdoors we would advise you to bring suitable clothing.  Seating is provided. (
