PENTECOST

Scriptures tell us that while the apostles were at prayer with Mary suddenly there was a roaring wind and the Holy Spirit descended on them in the form of tongues of fire. It gave these timid and frightened men the courage to rush out into the street and fearlessly preach the word of God to everyone they met. At that moment the church was born. This has not been a once off happening ever since the Holy Spirit has been a permanent presence and a strength in guiding and directing the beginning of the church.

This feast brings home to us that God calls us to a deeper relationship with him and wants us to share his life. It is an invitation to enkindle the fire of love and to stir up the grace of our Baptismal calling.

There are times when we stand in need of the help of the Holy Spirit whose presence will make a difference to our thinking. The power of the Spirit will come if we ask for him. It is for us to leave the door of our hearts open to invite him in.

With this feast we celebrate the first Birthday of the Church because it was on the first Pentecost Sunday that the infant Church took on its missionary role.


FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Congratulations to the children from Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada who received the Eucharist for the first time last Sunday.

We wish God’s blessing on them, their families, friends and teachers and all who helped them on their faith journey to this special time.


JPPC FUNDRAISER

DURROW PATTERN

Durrow Pattern Day is next Friday, 9.  The list of events are as follows: 

10.00am First Communion Mass

12noon Concelebrated Mass followed by Procession to The Well

4.30pm Sports in GAA  field (weather permitting)

9.00pm Cards in Durrow Hall


CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION

Tullamore Parish annual Corpus Christi Procession takes place after 6.30pm Mass on Saturday 17th June. This year marks our 90th procession through the town.

Weather permitting the procession will exit the main door of the Church on to Store St, passing through Harbour St, Columcille St, Kilbeggan Bridge, Convent View, Puttaghaun and end with Benediction in Connolly Park.

A mini bus will be available to bring elderly people back to the church to collect cars after Benediction.

All parishioners and parish groups are encouraged to get involved and attend this lovely public celebration of the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist.


MONTHS MEMORIES AND 1ST ANNIVERSARY MASSES

Over the last 18 months there have been a large number of funerals in the parish. This has had a knock on effect on Month’s Memory and First Anniversary Masses. Both of these are important moments in grief.

In order to avoid causing families undue stress, having to wait months to mark these moments, two intentions will be combined on Saturday night and 11.30am and 1.00pm Sunday Masses.

This applies only to Months Memories and First Anniversaries.


WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES, AUGUST 2018

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

At least 3,000 volunteers are needed to assist with the planning and organizing of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin which Pope Francis hopes to attend.
