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

“Who touched me?” Jesus asked. It seems a strange request with crowds milling around. Many people brushed against him but the woman made contact in a different way. The same can happen in our relationships. We brush against many people but make real contact only with a few. Who are the people you have touched, and who has touched you? What difference has this made to you and to them?

The image of a boat in a stormy sea is a symbol of life in difficult times and can represent inner turmoil, anxiety and high emotions. When you have been in such circumstances, perhaps a “Jesus person” came to your assistance and calmed you down? Recall that person with gratitude.
