First Holy Communion
Comhghairdeas to our 2nd class girls who received their First Holy Communion on Saturday 10th May in St. Gabriel’s Church and St. John’s Church. A special buíochas mór to Fr. Martin and to our 4th class choir who sang in St. John’s Church, conducted by Ms. Finn. Thanks also to Mrs. MacNamee and Mrs. Daly for their preparation of the choir. Buíochas to Ms. Aoife Foxe who was the organist. It was a very moving special occasion for the girls and their families. Buíochas to Fr. Pat McManus, St. Gabriel’s Church and Fr. Larry White, St. Anthony’s Church. The Parents’ Association provided tea/coffee and drinks for the girls and their families in the School Hall after the ceremony – hope you enjoyed the cuppa! J
On Thursday 22nd May the 6th class girls will receive their Confirmation. The 5th classes, who form the choir, are very busy practicising for the service under the guidance of Mrs. Murray, helped by the 5th class teachers Mrs. Joy, Ms. O’Connell and Ms. Brodie. Mrs. Murray is also very busy rehearsing with our Instrumental Group – Sophie Armstrong, Fiona Baragry, Billie Baumeister, Caoimhe Duffy, Elizabeth Gahan and Clodagh Ting.
