A prayer at this time of coronavirus

Jesus Christ, you are our refuge from one generation to the next. 

Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of this virus, 
that we may experience your healing presence.

Heal those who are sick with the virus. 

Heal us from our fear and worry.

Stay by our side in this time of uncertainty.

Be with those who have died. May they be at rest in your eternal peace.

Be with the doctors, nurses, researchers and all medical professionals. 
May they know your inspiring presence.

Be with us that we may act with care.

Be with the leaders and those who have responsibilities. Give them the wisdom and insight to make good decisions. 

Be with us in our time of need, calm our anxieties 
and bring Your healing and peace.

Amen.

MAINTAINING PARISH FINANCES

In Tullamore, as in every parish, our income has been almost obliterated. We have made big cutbacks in spending and wages but we still have to run the parish and we have financial responsibilities to those employed. We depend completely on the support and generosity of parishioners and we need your help.  You can donate to the parish in a number of ways:- <<Click Here>>

A PRAYER FOR MOTHERS DAY

Thank you, Lord, that you fill a mother’s heart with love,

That you have instilled in her very being, the need to protect her children
if at all possible.

Thank you for giving her the gift of nurturing her children, of teaching them, of comforting them,

For feeding them and making a safe place for them.

For guiding them to be all that God has created them to be.

Fill every mother with love, wisdom and endurance,

With strength and patience and joy.

Give them ability to forgive again and again.

Enable her to rely on You and call upon You,
because You will give her all she needs.

In Your precious and all powerful name, Amen.

Wishing all Mother’s a Happy Mother’s Day
