Do It Anyway


 A Prayer by St. Theresa of Calcutta

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.

 Forgive them anyway.

 If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.

 Be kind anyway.

 If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends

and some genuine enemies.

 Succeed anyway.

 If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.

 Be honest and sincere anyway.

 What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.

 Create anyway.

 If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.

 Be happy anyway.

 The good you do today, will often be forgotten.

 Do good anyway.

 Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.

 Give your best anyway.



 A Little Bit About Us

St. Brigid’s Parish is located in Ballybane 4.8 kilometres east of Galway City. The area of Ballybane takes its name from a Ring Fort,which dates back to a period between 600BC and 16 AD. The Parish is named after St. Brigid of Kildare and the emblem of the parish is the St Brigid’s Cross. St. Brigid’s is a relatively new parish (1995) and now boasts a small native population, a much larger population coming originally from Galway City and county, a sizeable number of Travellers and a large and diverse representation of people from Africa and Eastern Europe.
