I remind myself that I am in the presence of the Lord.
I will take refuge in His loving heart.
He is my strength in times of weakness.
He is my comforter in times of sorrow. Amen

FATHER CORNELIUS LEAVES TULLAMORE
This week we said "Goodbye" to Father Cornelius Acholo who has spent the last three months ministering in the parish of Tullamore. Father Cornelius is going back to Rome to continue his studies. When he is finished he hopes to return to his home diocese of Idah, in Nigeria. We wish him every success in his studies and future career. 
DOUBLE GOLD! 
It has been an historic week for our town winning Gold Medals in two competitions. In the European Entente Florale and in the National Tidy Towns. Both of these medals have come from the hard work of the Tullamore Tidy Towns group and so many volunteers and from the people of the town taking pride in our environment. It is a testimony to community spirit and to people working together for the benefit of everyone. Congratulation to all.
