The boys from 2nd class received their First Holy Communion in the Church of St. Brigid and St. Joseph, in Bóthar na Naomh, on Sunday, May 10th. The boys truly were “Happy in the Presence of the Lord”, as the hymn tells us. The boys were fully engaged and participated so beautifully in the ceremony – through prayer, song, mime, reading and bringing forward gifts. Both parents and teachers have just reason to be proud of this magnificent group.
Many thanks to all those involved – Ms. Barbara Ryan and Ms. O’Halloran, in particular, as class teachers, and Mrs. Butler, as principal. We thank also the school choir and musicians, with their teachers – Ms. Bríd Ryan, Ms. Deirdre Lanigan and Ms. Ber Ryan. These boys added so much to the occasion.
