Sixth Year Messages

On Tuesday night our class of 2020 joined us via webcam as Fr. Brian Maguire celebrated their graduation Mass from the Cathedral of the Assumption in Carlow. The theme chosen by our sixth year students was ''Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.'' How apt for this wonderful group of young women as they embark on the next step of their journey.

School Principal Ms. Niamh Broderick delivered her warm words of welcome to students, parents, staff, trustees and the Mercy sisters, family members and friends. We were delighted to be joined by CEO of CEIST, our former Principal Ms. Clare Ryan.

The student body of the school was represented by headgirls Christina Byrne, Aoife Gallagher and Ellen Phiri who participated in the Mass. Music was led by Ms. Aine Sheils and Ms. Aisling Byrne with two members of the Folkgroup, Ciara Long and Sadhbh Moran who provided lovely music and harmonies.

Ms. Sheila Coady and Ms. Joan Scott from the RE department were both on hand to ensure that the Mass was as spiritual as they had planned, and indeed it was.

Ms. Vivienne O'Neill, Year head for sixth year read the second reading.

The moving Communion reflection, written by graduating student Aoife Cawley, was read by Ellen Phiri.
