Prayer Service of Remembrance

 

p1020414Two prayer services organised by Ms Healy were held in the school hall yesterday and today to remember all our loved ones who are no longer with us but are still dear to us in our hearts. Fr Paul Crosbie led the service and Ms Morris and some of the school orchestra played music to add to this beautiful occasion. We all have photos and memories to help us remember those who have passed away, but another way to remember is to plant bulbs which will also help keep their memory alive.p1020411

Fr Paul invited children to plant daffodil bulbs in tubs of soil near the altar in memory of their family and friends who have passed away. Later in the week the bulbs will be transplanted in areas around the school. The bulbs will be protected by the earth during the dark winter days until the light of Spring shines again. When the bulbs bloom in Spring, they will remind us that our loved ones are never far away.

The month of November is devoted to Holy Souls. Our Sacred Space in school has been decorated to remind us all of this. We are invited to use one of the paper leaves provided to write down the names of family members or friends who have passed away and place it on the Tree of Remembrance.

Jubilee Celebrations

 

A very special Jubilee Mass was celebrated in the Cathedral of Christ the King yesterday to mark the 75th anniversary of the consecration of the Cathedral of the Diocese of Meath. The chief celebrant was Bishop Michael Smith and the guest of honour was Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York. The beautiful music throughout the Mass was performed by the Cathedral Choir and the Mullingar Choral Society. Before the Mass, a tree planting ceremony was held to mark this special occasion.

Afterwards, more than 2,500 parishioners took part in a street party which was organised by parish volunteers. There were many activities to keep everyone busy and the lovely weather ensured that no-one was in a hurry to leave. Congratulations to everyone who organised this wonderful event.

Ash Wednesday

 

ash wednesdayAsh Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season. At Mass, the priest marks foreheads with black ashes, in the sign of the cross. The ashes used are typically made from the burning of blessed palms from the previous year's Palm Sunday Celebration. All classes from 3rd to 6th attended Mass today in St Paul's Church to receive their ashes.

Traditionally, we think of Lent as a time when we give up something, sweets, x-box etc but it can also be a time when we start something new. Why not make a special effort to keep your room tidy, help around the house, or do something kind for someone you meet during your day?
