Eternal Father,I offer you the most precious blood of Your divine son, Jesus, 
In union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls 
In purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, 
Those within my own home and within my family, Amen.


Food Distribution

FOOD POVERTY IN OFFALY At least 25 families in the county require donations of basic foodstuffs on a monthly basis. Tullamore native, Ken Smollen, and a small group of helpers have been working quietly to bring discreet help to those in need since last year. The group also work in conjunction with the "You're Not Alone" group in Dublin :  <Click Here> for the full story.

PARISH RETREAT
Our Parish Retreat, organised by the Knights of St Columbanus, will take place on March 4th, from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm in the Parish Centre.  It will be led by Fr Shane Crombie. Refreshments will be provided (Coeliacs please let us know).  Places are limited.  Leave names into Parish Centre.
AT MASS WE STAND AND SIT AND KNEEL 
We are introducing some small changes in when we sit and stand at Mass to bring our liturgy into line with the missal.  We hope that a common practice, which is being used in most parishes throughout the country, will help people feel even more welcome and at home in whatever Church they participate in the celebration of the Eucharist.  We will introduce this change during Lent.

COLLECTORS REQUIRED
Collectors are urgently needed for the 10:00 am and 1:00 pm Sunday Masses.  If you would like to help, please leave your name and phone number in the Sacristy.

READERS FOR LENT
Readers are required for the 7:30 pm weekly Masses during Lent.  If you would like to volunteer, please leave your name in the Sacristy.
