O God, out of Your love for us you sent your dearly beloved Son to become man. 
You willed that He be born in a humble stable in order to give us an example of humility. 
We pray You now to bless this crib, a representation of the scene of His birth; 
May it draw us closer to Him
. Amen.

CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE - THANKS: The parish wishes to thank everyone who participated in and supported our Carol Service in December.  The amount raised was €7,540 which will go directly towards the continued reduction of our parish debt.
Tullamore Community Radio has recently announced that a recording of the service will be their very first broadcast programme. Here is the announcement: 
"This Christmas Eve at 2.00pm and again on Christmas morning at 11.00am. Our first online broadcast will be a recording of the recent carol service sung by our local schools in Tullamore church," said Station Manager, Tommy McCabe. He added "I'm proud to bring this as our very first programme which will give all the children and their families at home and abroad a chance to celebrate in a festive feature on their own community station." The programme can be heard by logging onto www.tullamorecommunityradio.com or by finding us on Facebook/Tullamore Community Radio. 
Chairman Liam Dumpleton wants to wish "on behalf of all the team here, a happy Christmas to everyone."



"Reforming Rome is like cleaning the Egyptian sphinxes with a toothbrush," Francis told the cardinals, bishops and priests who work for him on Thursday. "You need patience, dedication and delicacy."
