We would like to congratulate the pupils from sixth class who received the Sacrament of Confirmation at the end of March in Killaloe. It was a wonderful liturgy and all participants help create a meaningful celebration by contributing to readings, prayers and hymns. The theme of the confirmation this year focused on Laudato Si, which was the letter from Pope Francis emphasising the need to care for the common home – our world. The pupils had worked extremely hard in the run up to the big day, including taking part in a retreat day in the convent school in Killaloe which raised their awareness and understanding of the sacrament. We couldn’t be prouder of them! Well done to all involved.
We would also like to acknowledge the help of parents and teachers in the weeks leading up to the Confirmation day.
