An historic event is set to take place at the Family Mass, in the Cathedral of The Assumption, on Saturday, 11th November at 7.30pm. as the first Parish Priest for Thurles since 1774 will be inducted into this restored role. Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly, in his recent clerical changes, appointed Fr. James Purcell as Parish Priest of Thurles. The Ceremony of Induction will be performed by Canon Eugene Everard, V.G. which adds even further local interest to the event. Fr. James has specifically chosen the Family Mass for this occasion as he sees himself as joining the wider family of the Thurles Parish community. A warm welcome is extended to all to come along and share in this historic celebration in our Parish.
