"Thank you, Sr Therese"
One of the most familiar faces in Mullingar parish has retired after many years of service in St Paul’s Church.
Sr Therese Mullen has been a parish organist and set up the St Paul’s Folk Group. She also served as a valued member of the parish liturgy team.
Bishop Michael Smith celebrated Mass in St Paul’s Church on Sunday 6 December 2015, during which Fr Padraig McMahon made a presentation to Sr Therese on behalf of the parish. The tribute to Sr Therese was greeted with warm applause and appreciation.
“Sr Therese doesn’t “do” age and years but we know that she has spent 17 of them here in St Paul’s Church” Fr McMahon said. She directed the St Paul’s Choir each Sunday and provided music for at least 1,000 Masses in the Cathedral and St Paul’s Church.
