Christianity reached the parish of Ballinasloe as early as the time of Saint Patrick when Saint Grellan was consecrated by him and established his foundation in Kilclooney. Saint Raoilin established his church in Creagh. Kilclooney and Creagh became parishes after the Synod of Kells in 1152. The foundation stone of the present Saint Michael's church was laid in 1852 and Our Lady of Lourdes church was dedicated on August 18, 1931

READINGS FOR SUNDAY NEXT: Acts 4:32-55.   Ps 117:2-4, 15-18,  R/ v 1.1.    1Jn5:1-6.   Jn. 20:19-31.   Lect 1:441.
Furthermore, power is found in another resurrection lesson that good is more powerful than evil and that life is stronger than death .Easter does not discount Good Friday, but it certainly outshines it, proving that there is no affliction, no setback, no misfortune we face that cannot serve as a stepping-stone for something wonderful. We need never languish in despair for whatever we endure. The resurrection of Jesus encourages us to look for the oasis in the desert, the silver lining in every cloud. We find power in meeting our problems and doing what we need to take care of ourselves by the assurance of eventual victory.  Michael R. Kent
