Thought for the Week: Prayer for the People of Ukraine

 Loving God, We pray for the people of Ukraine, For all those suffering or afraid, that you will be close to them and protect them. We pray for world leaders, for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices. We pray for the world; that in this moment of crisis, we may reach out in solidarity to our brothers and sisters in need. May we walk in your ways so that peace and justice become a reality for the people of Ukraine and for all the world? Amen.


Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us! Our Lady of Kyiv, pray for us!

First Confession

Last Wednesday our 2nd class celebrated their First Confession in the Sacred Heart Church.  It was a lovely occasion for the children and their families.  After the confession we went to the Parish Centre where we all enjoyed refreshments.  


Lá Glas

This week we are celebrating Seachtain ns Gaeilge 2022! Má tá beagáinín Gaeilge agat, labhair í, If you have a small bit of Irish, use it!!

As part of our celebrations we have had Irish dancing, singing, tráth na gceist. and our Lá Glas. The children were invited to wear anything green they had, or any bright colours to celebrate Lá Fhéile Pádraig.

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!
