Welcome to the Parish of St. James Ballinora

With easing of some restrictions we are delighted that churches are now open for people to attend Mass from May 10th. However numbers are restricted to 50. Stewards will be in place to assist with seating, hand sanitising etc. Volunteers to help with stewarding would be welcome..

While we welcome back those who feel safe, livestreaming and recording of all Masses will continue.

Unfortunately we are unable to have First Communion or Confirmation ceremonies at the moment. Christenings may go ahead but with restricted numbers, parents, godparents, siblings and grandparents only. Will keep updating as things change.

Ballinora Blessing

(Adapted from Marymount)

May God the Father make this Church, Parish and Community a safe place, a place of welcome, hospitality and care, full of understanding and acceptance where one can be as one is. 

May God the Son give to each person in this community enthusiasm for their work, peace for their journey, and the support of companionship. 

May God the Holy Spirit grant each person who lives here a wisdom mixed with compassion, a presence infused with gentleness and creativity, and a faith filled with hope and possibility. 

May the blessing of Father, Son and Holy Spirit give to all of us light to guide, courage to support, and love to unite now and for ever.
