BLESSING FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS

A blessing of healing hands for all our healthcare workers:

Yours are the hands full of experience and skill.

Yours are the hands reaching out with compassion.

Taking time to show care, swiftly taking action.

Yours are the hands gently touching your patients,

You touch families, too.

Yours are the hands that show you care.

You lift the hearts of those who suffer.

Your hands celebrate the joy of healing.

Your hands bless all they touch with the spirit of compassion.

Thank you for sharing your abundance and gifts.

For touching lives and lifting spirits.

Blessings and thanks for the many works of you hands.

Welcome

fr delargy 2011 

Hello!

I'm Fr Paddy Delargy, Parish Priest of Kirkinriola, the Catholic parish of Ballymena.  Welcome to our parish website.


Ballymena is a large market town in the middle of County Antrim, one of the most northern counties
in Ireland.

We're in the shadow of Slemish mountain.  In this area our means of communication have changed radically since Saint Patrick's day, but the message remains the same:

Christ be beside me
Christ be in the heart of everyone who thinks of me
Christ be in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me,
Christ be in every eye that sees me
Christ be in every ear that hears me
