A Church

FR. LUKE RECEIVES A NEW DIOCESAN APPOINTMENT

Fr. Luke has been appointed as curate with pastoral duties in Clara and in Tubber parishes. He will be resident in Horseleap with a shared ministry between the two parishes. He has been with us here in Tullamore for the past 6 years and we will miss him. He has been very much part of our parish during very challenging times and we have appreciated his dignified and prayerful presence among us. His ministry to young people in our schools, to couples preparing for marriage, to the sick at home and in hospital, to the needy, to families in time of bereavement, to prayer groups, his patient listening and thoughtful advice, these have all been part of his committed and gentle ministry. We wish him well in his new appointment and may God continue to bless him and his work.
Fr. Joe.
