TULLAMORE PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL

The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) of Tullamore Parish has completed its term or office having being formed in 2019 for a three year term.  

In our Parish we have been blessed with Parishioners who have willingly served as members of the Council; some have served for many years.  We acknowledge our indebtedness to them all: they have been so generous with their time and gifts to serve the people of the Parish.

Parish Pastoral Councils are leadership structures that enable priests and people to work together to build up dynamic Christian communities that are characterised by prayer, hospitality, mission and evangelisation.

We will shortly begin the process of establishing a new PPC and we will have more information on this process in the coming weeks.
