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>>
