BALLYHEIGUE NOTES – 3rd JANUARY 2017
COMMEMORATION OF OUR LADY’S APPARITION IN FATIMA: In 2017 we will be
commemorating the centenary of Our Lady’s apparition at Fatima. Our Lady
requested in 1917 that at 3.00pm every First Saturday for five consecutive
weeks that the Rosary was to be prayed and meditated on for reparation and
for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart. We in the parish would like to
fulfil Our Lady’s message to the world at Fatima in 1917 by having this
devotion prayed for every First Saturday of 2017. These devotions will be
held at Our Lady’s Grotto in Ballyheigue at 3.00pm every First Saturday
from January to December 2017. Next Saturday 7th January 2017 we will start
