Merciful God, we pray to You for all the men, women and children who have died
after leaving their homelands in search of a better life. Though many of their

graves bear no name, to You each one is known, loved and cherished. May we 
never forget them, but honour their sacrifice with deeds more than words. Amen

HARVEST MASS

Tullamore Parish's annual "Harvest Mass" was celebrated on Sunday 22nd. September at 11:30 a.m.  This celebration has its roots in the Old Testament when God's people gave thanks for the fruits of the harvest.  This was a week-long celebration known as the Feast of Tabernacles.  Our farming community organise and share in this Mass of Thanksgiving, and all parishioners share in their celebration.  As usual, we had a rich display of all the fruits of the earth, and our parish thanks the members of the farming community who worked so well to produce such a beautiful display.
