Tullamore Parish
Gracious God, ruler of the earth and all its people, we worship You. 
We confess that too often our words hurt others and our deeds are selfish; 
Forgive us. In this time of uncertainty and fear, help us to love our enemies
And do good to those who hate us, in the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
  Carol Service
 

CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE - THANK YOU 

The Christmas Carol Concert which took place last Sunday was a very special event which brought together many sections of our community for an evening of music and reflection.  The success of the evening was due to the co-operation, hard work and commitment of so many people. Our sincere appreciation to the choirs, parents, teachers and fundraising committee, the Knights of St Columbanus, Parish Staff, those who sold and bought tickets, and to all who made the evening possible.  This was an evening which builds community, opens imaginations and creates rich memories.    <<Click Here>> for pictures.
