Institute Liturgies

Various Liturgies take place throughout the academic year. Dates, times and venues will be posted on the various campuses, prior to the event.


The LIT Tipperary Chaplain, Fr. Thomas Hearne, and the LIT Limerick Pastoral Care Co-Ordinator, Theresa O' Sullivan, share the same main priority,  and that is to treat students with respect and dignity in all situations.

Please take good care of yourselves throughout the year and look after each other.
