Remembrance Mass, Wednesday 30th November 2016
Fr Tom Nash was the principal Celebrant at the Mass held in the College Chapel last night remembering the extended Blackrock College Community and friends who were bereaved during the past 12 months.
“They whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before, they are now wherever we are”
This very special liturgy, moving yet uplifting, was deeply appreciated by so many.
I thank Fr Nash and the Concelebrating Community; Ms O’Connor and our Past Pupils Choir; President of the Union Mr Brian O’Neill (Class of 1981); Mr Goan, Mr Tom Ryan, Ms McMahon: our Ministers of the Eucharist (Brian O’Doherty and Robert Sheedy, both 6th Year), Servers (Michael Callaghan, Diarmuid Foley, Cianán Quinn, Guillermo Ruiz, Carlos Villarroya, all Transition Year) and Ministry of Welcome Team (Scott Henderson, Gonzalo Araluce, Maksim Chavro, Florian Walser, Ruslan Tsatiev and Pablo Quintana all Transition Year) who provided comfort, strength and assurance of God’s promise of everlasting life to the large gathering.
