O God, Who on this day through the guidance of a star
didst manifest Thine Only-Begotten Son to the Gentiles;
mercifully grant that we who know Thee now by faith,
may one day be brought to the contemplation of the beauty
of Thy majesty. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

STATEMENT ISSUED ON MONDAY 30th. DECEMBER

A post published on the Tullamore Parish Facebook page on Christmas Eve concerning IVF has caused great distress to many members of our parish community and beyond.  For hurt caused we apologise.

Matters concerning fertility are sacred and sensitive, and all children are cherished and God-given, this is the essence of the Christmas message.

The parish understands the great suffering experienced by mothers and fathers who long for a child. At this time, we offer our pastoral and prayerful support to all parents and expectant parents.
