‘Do This in Memory’
The Enrolment of the children preparing for First Holy Communion in 2019 takes place this Sunday during the 11.00am Mass.
The preparation of these children is like a three-legged stool : home, parish, school. All three legs offer support. Do This in Memory is a vital and valuable home-and-parish programme that supports the fragile Faith of the little ones and refreshes the Faith-life of their parents.
The school (third ‘leg’) offers very particular support to the children. Parishioners are called on to contribute their prayers and best example.
‘Choir of Voices’ Mass
St. Ailbe’s National School invites all parishioners to join in the ‘Choir of Voices’ Mass on this coming Tuesday 18th Dec., in the Parish Church at 7.00pm. All are invited to the Parish Hall afterwards for ‘tae agus cáca milis’.
This special Community Christmas Mass is a major part of the school’s very successful Partnership Schools Ireland initiative that sees the pupils, staff and full school community engage together in a range of projects.
