Tuam Parish

Dear Parishioners,

We hope you are keeping well and especially staying safe.  Now more than ever, this is a time for prayer, resolve and faith.  

In Isaiah 41:10 we are told “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”. 

As we prepare for Holy Week and the glory of the Risen Christ, this Easter will be one like no other.  We are committed to conducting as many as possible of our normal services – although from a distance.  

We want to take this opportunity to thank parishioners for returning their weekly envelope.  We are very grateful for your generosity during these challenging times.  These contributions ensure the continued running of the parish.  Many parishioners are also submitting their prayer intentions.  As mentioned last week, these will be kept on the altar during Holy Week ceremonies.

With Palm Sunday and the start of Holy Week, we invite you to: 

  • Join us on parish radio 108 FM or web cam – please see the full Holy Week schedule in our newsletter
  • Complete a prayer intention card – these are available in the Cathedral Porches
  • Return your weekly envelope or make a donation, if appropriate for you now – the envelope can be dropped off in the Cathedral
  • Due to Government restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to distribute the Easter offering envelopes as would do normally. If you are making your Easter offering – please use an ordinary envelope, include your envelope number and place your Easter offering in the box beside the Candelabra in the Cathedral.  

Be assured of our continued prayers for you, your families and our parish.  Let us take solace in the resurrection joy that awaits us on Easter Sunday. 

Blessings to you, 

Fr. Pat Farragher, Adm.
