Tuam Parish

Dear Parishioner,

During these extraordinarily challenging times, be assured of our prayers for you, your loved ones and our entire community. We are praying for your safety, those directly impacted by Covid-19, their families and our tremendous healthcare workers.

We know how important faith is in a time of crisis.
It draws us closer together, brings out the best in humanity and reflects God’s grace in us all. A difficult period such as this pandemic demonstrates great goodwill with parishioners asking how they can help. In response to this, there are a number of ways to assist the parish and our ‘parish family’:

  • Remember those we hold dear in prayer – please complete a prayer intention card (available in the Cathedral Porch or at the Parish Centre); we will keep these cards on the altar during Holy Week ceremonies.

  • Offer your gratitude to someone for a kind deed in the midst of Covid-19.

  • Contact a neighbour – today’s technology gives us many options; with a note through the post being especially valued

  • Return your weekly envelope or offertory donation, if appropriate for you now – the parish relies on your support both spiritually as well as financially. The weekly collection pays for the running costs of the parish and our ministries; the envelope can be dropped off in the Cathedral or handed into the Parish Centre.

    On behalf of the parish, we are very grateful for any way you can support. Thank you.
    Please continue to participate in Mass through the Parish Radio and Cathedral webcam. We will share details of the Holy Week Ceremonies in next weekend’s Newsletter. Together, let us call on the intercession of Our Lady and St. Jarlath for an end to Covid-19.

    Blessed Sacrament Chapel to close temporarily

    The Blessed Sacrament Chapel will close temporarily during the current Coronavirus Pandemic. Given parishioners’ obvious faithfulness to their hour of adoration and the clear advice of the Government on Wednesday last March 24th to stay at home unless travel is absolutely necessary, the decision was made to close the Blessed Sacrament Chapel after Benediction on Sunday March 29th.

    While the Chapel is closed the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on the Altar in the Cathedral after the 10.00 am Mass until 6.00 pm each day except Sunday. Anyone wishing to spend time in private prayer before the Blessed Sacrament may do so in the Cathedral.
