Celebrating with St Joseph's

What an uplifting celebration we shared with St Joseph's SS yesterday for Mercy Day. So much thought and effort went into the ceremony and we were both honoured and delighted to partake. Special Thanks to Fr Dixie and Fr John also and most especially to the school community in St Joseph's and in particular to Ms McHugh and Ms McCabe for including us so meaningfully.

Wow! What can we say? Thanks to the staff members who give of their talents and gifts so generously to impart their expertise to the very fortunate pupils here. We firmly believe that through this and the Rainbows Support programme which will be facilitated here later in the year that we are in a unique and fortunate position to impart a whole new set of skills to the ladies and to ensure their full development in a very holistic and social way. This is only possible because of the kindness and effort of those offering the classes! The spirit of mercy lives on in St Angela's! If your child is interested in any of the above classes please find the form which is gone home in schoolbags today
