Bishop Martin – Welcome back to Thurles!

Thanks from Bishop Martin:

Thanks for truly tremendous weekend of celebration of our working together during my pastoral ministry in Thurles Parish from 2002 to 2017.  My family and I deeply appreciate the welcome and the careful planning for the celebration of Mass in the Cathedral of the Assumption @ 7.00 p.m. and in SS. Brigid’s & Joseph’s, Church Bóthar na Naomh @ 10.00 a.m. followed by refreshments and the opportunity to meet and chat last weekend, June 29th/30th 2024.  The ongoing spirit of working together of the Thurles Parish Pastoral Team and Fr’s Jim, Joe and Vincent guided by Archbishop Kieran was evident and with God’s help augers well for the future of Thurles Parish.  I will treasure the beautifully produced representation of Our Lady Star of the Sea from Our Lady’s Chapel of the Cathedral of the Assumption, Thurles as a fond remembrance of my time with you.  With prayerful good wishes and thanks.  Bishop Martin Hayes, Kilmore.
