Fr. Ged (our Parish Priest) is a familiar face in school.  He visits us regularly, not only to say Mass but often just to say Hello.  The children are used to seeing him popping into their classrooms and he has even been known to join in with Maths' lessons and sit and listen to class novels at 3pm!  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 them and display them on the pews so that his Church did not feel so empty.  Fr. Ged loved this idea so much that he 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 on the pews in St. Ann's Church. If you have a few moments spare 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). Fr. Ged continues celebrate Mass each day and shares these Masses with us via the Parish Facebook page (link below).  He will continue to post videos of the Masses during the closure which you are very welcome to view, at your leisure. If you wish to send a photograph to Fr. Ged, details of how to do this are all available on the Parish Facebook page.
