3rd Year Family Mass November 2017
3rd Year Family Mass
Mission Sunday: 12th November 2017
Fr. Aquinas Duffy (Class of 1977), was Chief Celebrant at the 3rd Year family Mass last Sunday. In an excellent homily, he reminded us that each of us has the capacity to enrich our community-school, family, parish – if only we remember to say three things: “Please”, “Thank You”, “I am sorry”.
Max Reid and his parents Darina and Joe led the congregation in the ‘Family Faith Prayer’, a copy of which was given to each member of the congregation after the Mass.
We thank President of the Union, Mr Eunan O’Carroll (Class of 1984) for providing that vital bond between our past and the present. We had a fabulous liturgy for which I thank my colleagues Mr Dunne, Ms O’Kane, Mr Grumley-Traynor, Mr Hurl, Mr Orrock, Mr O’Reilly, Ms McMahon, Ms McGlynn and Mr Herlihy, our Eucharistic Ministers Leo Downes, Rory Gallagher, Niall Brady and Conor Fitzpatrick (all 6th Year), our concelebrating community, our Musicians, Choir, Readers, Servers, Processionists, Parents’ and boys from 3rd in attendance, all of whom made an enormous contribution.
The ‘full-house’ was particularly encouraging and much appreciated.
