O valiant Lady, you have conquered hell.      
Give me strength to triumph over the devil, the world, and the flesh.     
You are our life and hope, please grant me perseverance in the grace of Your Divine Son. Amen.

MAY IS TRADITIONALLY DEDICATED TO OUR LADY
There are many prayers and devotions to her. Over this month we will print some of the most popular, and some more unknown prayers in honour of the Mother of God in the Bulletin.
This prayer is one of the most ancient prayers dedicated to Our Lady.  It was found centuries ago on a parchment scroll in Egypt.  It has been used in the Church as an introductory prayer to litanies and other devotions to the Mother of God.  In Latin it is called “The Sub Tuum”.

We fly to your patronage O Holy Mother of God, despise not our prayers and our necessities but deliver us from all dangers, O Blessed Virgin Mary.

We offer this prayer for Christians throughout the world who are suffering persecution for their faith in Jesus Christ.

Tullamore Parish celebrates its 90th Corpus Christi procession this year.  The procession takes place after 6.30pm Mass on Saturday 28th and will end with Benediction in Pearse Park. All parishioners and parish groups are encouraged to take part in this beautiful traditional occasion. 
A mini bus will be available to ferry elderly people back to the church after the procession to collect their cars.
