30th May - Good morning boys and girls. It’s Saturday! I’m thinking especially of our P4 children today who should have been receiving their First Holy Communion. I know that some of our P4 children have brothers, sisters, cousins and friends in P1. You and your families will be in my thoughts and prayers today when I watch Knock Mass at 12 noon. I will light a little candle for you too. I’ve also included a special prayer below, that people say when watching or listening to mass. We are all looking forward to the day when you receive Jesus sacramentally P4 and it will be a wonderful celebration. Today P1, rather than a challenge, I’d like you to say one Hail Mary for our P4 children, their parents, families, teachers and Canon Powell. Have a lovely day.
29th May - Good morning boys and girls. It’s Friday again! If we had been in school this morning we would be performing at assembly. P2/3 as well! I watched your last ‘I am Special’ assembly - You really are a special bunch of children! Lovely memories!
