Volunteer Appreciation! 
God of love and mercy, you call us to be your people, 
You gift us with your abundant grace.

WORKING TOGETHER WITH AND FOR CHRIST  

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.
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.  <<Click Here>> for more.
