Welcome to the Parish of St. James Ballinora
The Pre-Recorded Stations of the Cross can now be found in the Gallery Section.
One of the most beautiful artworks commissioned for the refurbished St James Church in 2008 is the painting of the Supper at Emmaus. The unrecognised risen Jesus is invited to supper by his two disciples with whom he has walked the road and listened to their grief and shared the scriptures. He breaks the bread with them and suddenly they recognise him, but he disappears. The story from Luke's Gospel is a commentary on the centrality of the Eucharist 'the breaking of bread' and the Word of God to a Christian community.
