A Christmas Message From Fr. James Purcell Thurles

Much loved Rev. Fr. James Purcell who returned again last July to the Thurles Parish as P.P. (joined you will remember also by much loved Rev. Fr. Joe Walsh, latter parish curate and Chaplain to the new Mary Immaculate 3rd level College, on the former St. Patrick’s Campus, here in Thurles; not forgetting the much loved and popular Fr. Vincent Stapleton) has taken recently to YouTube to convey his Christmas Message of sharing. (His YouTube message is probably a first for Co. Tipperary and most certainly a first for Thurles Parish).

Fr. James reminds us that the annual Service of Christmas Carols will be held in the Cathedral of The Assumption, here in Thurles, on Sunday evening next, December 17th at 7.00pm. (Truly a moving experience for the whole family, young and old.)

A reminder also for those of us anxious to chat in confidence; or to make our peace with our Creator; or indeed with someone else, to do please come along to the Cathedral on Monday evening, December 18th, between 7.00pm and 9.00pm.

Fr. James, may we wish you a very Happy and Holy Christmas and please convey a similar message to Fr. Joe & Fr. Vincent.
