Benemereti Medal

On Saturday the 6th of September we here in the parish of Baltinglass had four reasons to celebrate. When, Nancy Hughes, May Marcam,Kay Halstead and Sr. Brigid received Benemerenti Medals. The Benemerenti Medal is an honour awarded by the Pope to members of the clergy and laity for service to the Catholic Church. Each of these women dedicated many years in service of our Parish. For twenty four years Sr. Brigid has been serving the parish by her leadership in the Parish Choir and also preparing thousands of children of our parish for their first holy communion. Achieving this medal is no easy task, one must be dedicated, caring and most of loving. God does not ask everyone, and these women have been selected by God and their response of “Yes” for over the past twenty years in credited to them.  After the beautiful ceremony which was presided by Bishop Denis Nulty in our parish church, very one was invited to have a cup of tea and refreshments organised by Maureen Plant and her team of women.Congratulations to all.
