Blessing of 2012 Babies

Mums and Dad with respective bundles of joy on the occasion of the blessing of babies on Sunday Jan. 13th

A special blessing was given to all babies that were baptized in the parish during 2012 at the 11.30am Mass on Sunday last January 13th.  After Mass, parents and children, along with their grandparents and some godparents, came to the Community Centre for a cuppa and a chat. Congratulations to all the happy couples who are doing their bit to ensure that the population of the world is maintained!
