Stars In Their Eyes.
There is a huge buzz about the place in the build up to Stars In Their Eyes which will take place in the community centre on Saturday April 18th. Everywhere I go people are stopping me to tell me that they have seen video cameras following people around the green in Ballyduff!!!They have seen people they have known to be nearly bald suddenly showing a lovely flock of curls and strange dance routines steps have been heard through the walls of local establishments. I can reveal that I am a committee member and I know everything that is going but I was forced to sign a secrecy pact and if I leak any information I dread to think where I will end up!!!
There is only one way to find out the real truth: you need to make sure you get your ticket early. Tickets are priced at €15 which includes refreshments and a voting card. You can book your ticket with Marie on 089-4348844 so do yourself a favour and book early. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed and there are some sights that believe me you do not want to miss.
Our newly formed adult choir had their debut performance recently and everyone agreed it was a lovely addition to the mass. The lovely mix of male and female voices blended nicely together and they chose some beautiful hymns which we the congregation could join in with.
The choir meet each Monday night in the church from 8pm to 9pm and all are welcome to come along.
Parent and Toddler Group.
Our local Parent and Toddler group will meet in Ballyduff Community Centre from 9.30am to noon on Friday April 10th. This is a lovely chance for people to get to know each other and the children adore the fun they have making new friends.
A date for your diary is Friday April 17th when a gymboree will be held at the group and this is always very popular with parents and children alike. Come along and join in the fun.
Holy Week Ceremonies.
Fr. Mick has asked me to say a huge thank you to all who helped in any way during the Holy Week and Easter ceremonies. There are a number of extra jobs which need to be done around this time and I am sure Fr. Mick realises how lucky he is to have so many people at is disposal to help. May the Lord continue to bless them all.
