Class of 2010 – 1st Year Reunion!

The O Donnell and Treacy Family with their bundles of joy!

A special blessing was given to all babies that were baptized in the parish during 2010.  The  blessing took place at the 11.30 Mass on Sunday on what was the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus. After Mass, parents and children along with their grandparents and some godparents came to the Community centre for refreshments. A large crowd of both very young and old assembled for what was a very enjoyable morning.
