Congratulations to the boys in 2nd Class who made their First Holy Communion on Saturday, 18th May. It was a great day and the boys worked so hard to prepare for it. Many thanks to Sr. Patricia for all her help all year to get the boys ready for the sacraments of First Communion and First Confession, and also to Fr. James for saying the mass and welcoming the boys to the church for the Do This In Memory of Me programme over eight Sundays since last October. Thanks to Mr. Kinsella for all his hard work with 2nd Class, the boys are very grateful for all he did for them this year and we were all so excited that he was able to be part of the day with us. Mr. Curran also deserves special thanks for his help with hanging the art and helping the class to make up the design.

We hope you like some of the pictures of the day.

Do you like our art for the altar?

A big congratulations to the boys in 2nd Class who made their First Confession last night. They were so well behaved and were a credit to the school. The boys sang three songs, performed the Lost Sheep story and prepared some beautiful art to decorate the church. Well done to Adam in 6th Class who drew a fabulous picture of a shepherd for the altar. Thanks to Sr. Patricia for her help in preparing for the night, and to Fr. James and Fr. Larry for hearing our confessions. We are all now looking forward to our First Holy Communion on the 18th of May at 11am.
