2006 Consecrated life Day

 

 

The Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord (Candelmas) has been World day of Prayer for the Consecrated life since 1997. By dedicating the day for religious Pope John Paul wished to highlight the contribution made by the many thousands of men and women who have given their lives in the service of the Gospel. This year to mark the day members from the various religious communities and congregations in Tullamore and the surrounding area have been invited to celebrate the joy of call and response, of vocation and commitment at a Mass in the church of the Assumption.  It will of surprise to many to learn how many religious there are in the area. It is a time to acknowledge their great contribution to the Church and community. It is a time also to examine the future and continue to ask the Lord to send brave souls who will leave everything and follow Christ for the good of the World
and God's Holy Church.
