The tradition of having a May Procession in the parish will continue on the last Sunday of May (27th). It will take place immediately after the 11.00 am Mass. Last year was the first time since 1988 that such a procession was held in Straide. The procession will go from the Church to the Abbey and back again. Also, at 7.30 pm on May 25th, the recently renovated Marian Shrine at Ballylahan will be blessed. All are welcome to attend this special event.
