ST. CATHERINE’S CHURCH SUPPORT APPEAL 

We share the pain of the Church of Ireland community in the wake of the terrible act of vandalism committed against St. Catherine’s Hophill.  Our solidarity and our love is the most important thing we can offer.  We also wish to help materially. Envelopes are available in the Church and the Parish Centre, for you to make a contribution towards the cost of re-sorting the building. This will be collected and given from our parish at the end of the month. They can be dropped into the sacristy, the Parish Centre or in the weekly collection baskets.  

The Church of Ireland’s generosity and welcome when our parish church burned down in 1983 will never be forgotten.     

There will also be a Coffee Morning and raffle in the Parish Centre on Thursday 15th. from 10.30am-12.30pm.  Baked goodies welcomed!   Donations can also be sent via St Catherine’s “Go Fund Me” web site at www.gofundme.com/st-catherines-church-repair-appeal or to The Treasurer, St Catherine’s Church, Charleville Centre, Church Avenue.  Cheques should  be made payable to Tullamore Union of Parishes.  Your support is most welcome.

MASS FOR PARENTS WHO HAVE LOST A CHILD 

we will support and pray for parents who have lost a child on Tuesday 13th at 7.30pm in the Church of the Assumption,     
At this Mass we will pray for all parents, family members and friends who have had to cope with the tragic and untimely death of their infant, child, teenager or adult son or daughter.
We will remember with love and celebrate the lives of babies who have died before or around the time of birth.  We also welcome parents who have undergone the trauma of abortion.

GEASHILL DOES ITS BIT FOR DIVERSITY & SUSTAINABILITY  

In recent years the emphasis of the "Tidy Towns Competition" has changed from a focus on orderliness and tidiness to a support of biodiversity and sustainability. The community of Geashill has embraced this change and made great progress in proctecting bees and other pollinators. You can learn all about it in this beautiful short video. <<Click Here>>
