The Church of St Joseph in the Rock in Ballyshannon has a very strong Pastoral Committee and their aim is to support the faith life of the parishioners of all ages. The Parish Priest presides over the meeting of the Pastoral Committee.
The Pastoral Committee is a group in which priests and people and people work together as partners, to build up a truly Christian community. It is hoped to do this in the following ways –
(a) to involve parishioners in the celebration of Mass and the Sacraments
(b) to encourage people of all ages to be involved in the faith life of the Parish
(c) to interact with other groups in the Parish to further the values of the Gospel and in so doing enrich their own lives.
(d) to set up further sub-committees such as a baptismal group / bereavement group and prayer groups to support parishioners at important times in their lives.
The Pastoral Committee are open to any suggestions Parishioners may have in the furthering of these aims.
This group of parishioners are responsible for the upkeep of the altar area of the church. They take care of the linens & the altar flowers. New members are always welcome.
St Joseph’s Church Choir is an adult choir who sing at 10.00 am mass in Ballyshannon on Sundays and on other liturgical occasions during the year. New members are always welcome.
