I would like to express my thanks to Balla/Belcarra parishioners. 

I am extremely grateful to you,

especially for the facilitation of  funds

and understanding my dilemma/s when I try to

reach out to as many as possible. 

All I do is pray and hope and wish you a blessed 2015.

New Year’s Greetings from Fr Denis

Posted on Updated on


May God make your year a happy one!

Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,

But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;

Not by making your path easy,

But by making you sturdy to travel any path;

Not by taking  hardships from you,

But by taking fear from your heart;

Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,

But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;

Not by making your life always pleasant,

But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,

and by making you willing to be there to help.

God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.



I wish all parishioners, all who are visiting

and all our emigrants a very happy, healthy

and peaceful New Year.

Please God it will be a year that is good to us all.
