As part of their preparation for Confirmation, 6th class children attended a retreat with Fr. Marken in his garden on the afternoon of Friday 18th June. They were joined on the day by Ms. Walsh and Mrs. Corrigan. Luckily the sun was shining as the children gathered round in a circle for some co-operative games and activities. They feasted on tasty meals from McDonald’s and afterwards Fr. Marken hosted a table quiz for the class. There was an official unveiling of a Buddy Bench, handmade and painted by Dylan Devereux and his father Bobby – a kind donation to the school which we will treasure always. Then the children participated in a most beautiful Ceremony of Light, led by Fr. Marken in the church. All in all, it was a very memorable occasion which we hope will live on in the minds of the children for many years to come.
