Blasphemous attack on the sacred Seal of Confession by S.A., A.C.T. & Tas governments

Read a good article in 'The Catholic Weekly' here 

"Archbishop Fisher reminded priests that they are required “to resign themselves to punishment, even martyrdom, rather than break the seal of confession; the faithful likewise expect this of them”." 

   

PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL

These elections take place every two years at this time. Two members of the council are concluding their four year term at the end of the year - Trish Bazar and Margaret Tay.  Each is eligible for re-nomination.  Anyone who lives in or who worships in the parish of Ballina and is at least 16 is eligible for election and for voting.  Nominations close at 12.00 noon on Thursday 9th August.  Names of candidates and some details about them will be published in the parish bulletin for two weekends prior to the election.  Nomination forms are available from the doors of our two churches and also by clicking here.  If you download a form it must be signed and handed in via the collection plate at Mass or at the Parish Admin office.  The Returning Officer is Louise Martin.
