First Communion 2014

 

On Saturday the 17th of May 2014, second class celebrated their First Holy Communion. This amazing sacrament is a milestone of their time in the Boys School. It was an honour to witness them receiving the Eucharist for the first time, and then praying earnestly afterwards. Fr. Herlihy did a beautiful job preparing these children for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion and I would like to thank him for the wonderful ceremony.
Everyone involved took the process very seriously, and the fruits of their labour were witnessed on Saturday as 21 young children reverently and prayerfully received the sacrament for the first time.
I would like to take this opportunity to also thank Múinteoir Christine, the parents of the children, the choir who sang so beautifully, Carmel Fehin, Mrs. Norma Stritch, Teresa for the stunning flowers, the sacristan Kathleen and the altar servers.
Every successful occasion and achievement depends on a community of persons working together and this was no exception.
The boys who received Communion were:
Rory Lynn
Oran Moynihan
Kevin Daly
Joe McAuliffe
Jack Moynihan
Graham Cottrell
Daniel O’Sullivan
Ben Walsh
Congratulations everyone!!
