On a glorious January Sunday afternoon babies who were baptised in the parish of Shannon in 2017 were brought to SS John & Paul Church for the annual Blessing of Babies on the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord. In 2017 119 children were baptised in the parish and our annual gathering is to give support to their parents in the development of faith in their child. Our thanks to the Shannon Folk Group for music and the Baptismal team who co-ordinate this ministry. Our thanks to Michelle Justice for the photos.
