Mercy Day Celebration

We were delighted to celebrate our Mercy heritage with a Mass led by our school chaplain, Fr Seán on Monday September 25th. It was wonderful to share our celebration with members of the wider community and especially members of the Sisters of Mercy. As always Sr Margo helped us with our choir and we sang the Suscipe - the famous prayer of Catherine McAuley. Our 5th & 6th Classes led us in song, helped by their teaches and Sr Margo and our 4th Classes led us in the readings and prayers. Many Thanks to Fr Seán and all who helped u to honour this important occasion.
