FAMILY VALUES

When was the last time you attended a marriage or baptism ceremony? It’s probably not that long ago; these celebrations tend to come around every year or two, and they are often big family occasions. When a family gathers in the church to celebrate a wedding or a baptism, it is a time to reflect on the role our faith plays in our lives. What has brought us here?

When a couple says their wedding vows, they promise to seek God together, in good times and bad; during a baptism, parents and godparents are reminded of their responsibility to bring their child up in the practice of the faith. There is no such thing as the perfect marriage or family. In the home, we can experience some of our greatest joys and our deepest hurts and sorrows. But it is also where we experience God’s love, and do our best to pass it on.

Today’s readings offer an opportunity to think about marriage and family. Somewhere along the line, someone in your family made the decision to follow Jesus. Your parents may have brought you up to be baptised, just like their parents did for them, and so on down through the generations.

However you come to faith, the responsibility now rests with you. Jesus invited little children to come to him. We have a responsibility to pass on the faith in our own families. ‘May the Lord bless us all days of our lives’ (Ps 127)

Triona Doherty, Intercom


CONFIRMATION RITUAL

The next Confirmation Ritual will take place next weekend, October 13th, 6.30pm and October 14th 10.00am.


IT’S MISSION MONTH 2018 (SUNDAY  OCTOBER 7TH)

October is Mission Month! The most important day of this month is World Mission Sunday, which takes place on the 21st. This is the one Sunday in the year that Pope Francis asks you to pray a little stronger and dig a little deeper so that faith, hope and love can flourish.

Contributions given on World Mission Sunday will support the fearless and selfless work of our missionaries, who live shoulder-to-shoulder with people in communities that are struggling and often war-torn. Mission Month and Mission Sunday is a time for you to fully appreciate the dedication of these missionaries who are there before, during and after any crisis. Further information can be found at www.wmi.ie


TULLAMORE PARISH 

WORKING TOGETHER WITH AND FOR CHRIST

This weekend we continue to extend a warm invitation to all of you here to get involved, put yourself forward, and play a part in our wonderful parish of Tullamore.

We are so blessed to have a vibrant bustling parish right here on our doorstep. The parish is alive and active and pulsing with activity. Faith is nurtured here, whether it is in educational programmes, missions, youth activities, programmes for persons of various ages and walks of life. The list is endless. What makes a parish full of life and vibrant is its members; and the involvement of lay people, such as yourself.

There are abundant opportunities to get involved no matter how small a persons time and availability may be. We have opportunities for readers, ministers of Holy Communion, ushers, collectors, musicians, various choirs, not to forget our beautiful gem – the Hospital Chapel, adoration and ministering to the sick. Numerous groups and committees for example would warmly welcome new members.

We welcome new people, we welcome young people, we welcome people of all ages, to come on board, to assist and to continue on the wonderful work that has been and is being carried out. To truly understand the joy of volunteering is to experience it for yourself and there is so much you can do and be a part of!

Please fill in the form you have on your seat or printed on this bulletin and drop it into the Parish Centre or the Sacristy before next weekend. A parish is people united with Christ; this is your invitation from Him to be part of His Story.
