Seminar at St. Columban’s Dalgan Park, Navan on “The relevance of St. Columban in the 21st Century” will take place from Friday 30th August beginning at 7pm until lunchtime on Sunday 1st September. Since St. Columbanus is the patron saint of Ballivor Parish, the Columban Fathers in Dalgan hope that one or two parishioners from Ballivor would attend the seminar. The important thing is that those who attend would then share their knowledge with others in our diocese during the autumn and winter of 2013/14. The cost of the seminar including the meals is €35.00. Contact Fr. Oliver or the parish office on 046 9546488 if you are interested. Visit;
