Visit of Bishop Leahy

On Sunday 7th January Fr Mike and the parishioners in Patrickswell church were delighted to welcome + Bishop Brendan Leahy to celebrate Mass for the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.  We were also blessed with a visit to Ballybrown by Bishop Brendan on Sunday 28th January to celebrate Mass of the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time of the Church’s liturgical year.  Both occasions were very enjoyable for all involved and we look forward to Bishop Brendan’s next visit in May for the conferring of the Sacrament of Confirmation on the Fifth and Sixth Class Confirmation candidates from Ballybrown and Patrickswell Schools.
