Planning your Wedding –

Wedding Planning Booklets outlining the procedures necessary to planning a wedding in our churches are being placed in each of our churches – please feel free to take one.

You should contact the Rector as soon as you wish to set a date of your wedding so as to check the availability of the church you may wish to use.

Only the Rector of Clonmel Union of Parishes may confirm a date for a service to be held at any of the Church locations within the Clonmel Union of Parishes.

The church availability should be checked with the Rector before booking (and entering a contract with) a hotel so as to avoid any upset to your plans should you discover subsequently that either the Location or the Rector is not available on your preplanned date.

In the case of inter-Church weddings, you should contact the clergy from the two religious communities involved in the marriage. It will be necessary to have a chat with both clergy before making the final decision

Sunday School

Sunday School - All under Confirmation age are welcome, but if your child is under 4years one parent must stay with them. Might I suggest, that it might be a good thing for all participating parents to, at least, do the minimum Garda Vetting and so we able to “stand-in on occasion if necessary. Forms aailable from the Rector

Weekday Worship -

Weekday Worship - Wednesdays @ 10.30am   - Divine Worship – Old St Mary’s,


Our sympathy goes to Andrew Healy's family on their loss. Andrew was for a time, organist at Tullaghmeelan Church. A talented and interesting person, his funeral Service took place in Lismore Cathedral on  25th September in the presence of family and a large congregation.

Confirmation 2014

Confirmation 2014 -It is now time for young and older who have not been confirmed to think about it seriously. Bishop Michael will expect indications of numbers and venues by September 2013. I prefer that those wishing to be confirmed to indicate their desire to me personally. In confirmation we affirm our Baptismal Vows for ourselves, so each step towards it should be a personal decision. Four  young people have, so far, asked to be confirmed

Wedding Bells –

Wedding Bells – On Friday, 13th September, Jennie Hannigan & Sean Smith pledged their troth in Old St Mary's in the company of family & friends. Their young sons, Euan & Rhys were among the wedding party. Qwyn Rodger, 3rd son of Sean & Jennie was baptised during the ceremony with his big brothers taking  an active part. We wish Jennie & Sean every happiness for the future.

Bishop Visit

Bishop – On Sunday, 20th October 2013, Bishop Michael will return to St Paul's to administer the Rite of Initiation in all its forms, Baptism, Confirmation & Holy Communion. This will be an historic event in our parish and it is everybody's duty to be there and support those who will be celebrating their journey in faith and making a commitment to Christian living. This occasion mirrors the event at Cornelius' house in Acts.
