15th May, 2017.
Our Second class pupils received their First Communion last Saturday morning in Rathfeigh Church. The beautiful sunny day really added to the occasion. The children showed great maturity in saying their prayers and singing their songs. They were very well prepared for the ceremony by Ms. O’ Donoghue.
A huge collaborative effort made the day a great success. We would like to thank Gerry and all those who gave of their time to sing in the choir and also to the Mass servers. Our Parents’ Association did an amazing job once again this year. Thanks to the parents/guardians who helped out on the day and helped with the baking etc. The hall was beautifully decorated and all the families were greatly appreciative of the refreshments after the ceremony. A big thanks to Helen for preparing the Mass booklet, to Mrs Mc Auley and Mrs Long for organising the gifts and to Jim for giving of his time as parking attendant.
