Fr Tony Mullins, Limerick Diocesan Administrator calls for prayers following tragic deaths in Newcastle West
The horrific and tragic deaths of two young women and two children in Newcastle West on Tuesday, has left the entire community in Limerick and beyond in shock and disbelief. The unimaginable loss and trauma that is now being experienced by relatives, neighbours, and friends stretches our capacity to cope with such a tragedy. Our hearts go out to the families of the victims and to all who are affected by this terrible tragedy.
The community spirit that is so evident amongst the communities of Newcastle West and the surrounding parishes of Our Lady’s Pastoral Area will help carry the heavy burden that has being laid on the shoulders of the families affected by these tragic deaths. The counselling service of the diocesan Social Service Council will available through the Parish centre in Newcastle West to support those affect by this tragedy.
I ask for prayers to be offered at all Masses in the diocese this weekend for the deceased, and for all those who are grieving.
Fr Tony Mullins
Diocese of Limerick
