Welcome To Templeorum Parish Co. Kilkenny


Congratulation to all the young people receiving First Holy Communion and making their Confirmations this weekend, at long last.

Sunday 26th September next
A special Mass will be celebrated in Piltown Church at 3.30 p.m. to remember the three Waterford hurlers who were tragically killed in a road accident on the High Road locally while returning from Waterford v. Clare Under 21s on 4th April 1981. We will remember Tony Forristal aged 39, Martin O’Grady aged 19 and Jimmy Costelloe also aged 19.

Weather permitting after the Mass, prayers will be recited at the scene of the tragedy. Anyone attending the scene is urged to be extremely conscious of their own and the safety of others with regard to road traffic.


Finance Committee Meeting will be held in the in Community Centre at 7.15 p.m. on Monday 20th.

COVID restrictions and religious services Even though official restrictions are being gradually eased, in practical terms we must continue to observe sanitisation, hand hygiene, the wearing of face masks, social distancing and proper ventilation, as we have done throughout the emergency. We have been allowed to proceed to 50% capacity at our religious services and each parish has to look to its own situation and make appropriate decisions and adjustments to keep safe all who attend our churches.

Visits to the Sick 
Now that COVID restrictions are beginning to be relaxed, priests may recommence house visits. Some people may not want visitors to their home yet, however anyone that would like Fr. Moore to include them on his visitation list should give the Parish Office a call on 051 643112.

Pope’s September prayer intention: ‘An environmentally sustainable lifestyle’. People should change the way they eat, travel and use natural resources, energy and products so they minimize their harm to the earth, Pope Francis said.

“We pray that we all will make courageous choices for a simple and environmentally sustainable lifestyle, rejoicing in our young people who are resolutely committed to this.”
