Links with St Ann's Parish

Fr. Ged (our Parish Priest) is a familiar face in school and the children are used to seeing him popping into their classrooms to say hello.  When the government announced that Churches were to close, Mrs McGarry (our RE Coordinator) shared a photograph with Fr. Ged of an Italian priest who had asked his parishioners to send him photographs of themselves so that he could print and display them on the pews so that his Church did not feel so empty.  Fr. Ged loved this idea so much that he has invited parishioners and families from this parish to do the same. Many people, including a couple of our teachers, have taken up this invitation and have sent Fr. Ged photos to display in St Ann's Church. If you wish to send a photograph of yourself or your family to be displayed then the details of this are on the Parish Facebook Page:

Fr. Ged continues celebrate Mass each day and shares these Masses with us via the Parish Facebook page.​​ Why not visit the page to see the wonderful pictures that Fr. Ged has displayed (some of which have been drawn and painted by our school children).  He will continue to post videos of the Masses during the closure which you are very welcome to view, at your leisure.
