07. Cemetery Sunday ~ 2015

On Sunday 7th June, families and friends were welcomed to the annual Blessing of the Graves in St Joseph’s Graveyard, Ballycran by Fr Patrick Neeson and assisted by Fr Edward Magee and Canon Noel Conway.

The Readings for the day, rosary and reflections were recited by parishioners and the parish choirs sang appropriate hymns to enhance the ceremony.

After the ceremony and just before the rain came, a very welcome cup of tea was served in the Old School House, where friends were able to meet and catch up on the news – a big thank you to the Social Committee for their hospitality and anyone who helped before , during and after the ceremony.
