We start this post with a very special message from Ms. Ryan to those girls in our second class who should be making their First Holy Communion this Sunday.

Ms. Ryan with her Second Class girls.

To all the wonderful girls in 2nd Class,
I will be thinking of you most especially this Sunday, 17th
May 2020 on what would have been your Communion Day.
I hope you still enjoy the day with your family in the
knowledge that we have it all to look forward to!
We will have a great day when we finally get to celebrate!
With prayers for you all and a virtual hug.
Ms Ryan.


Today’s the day you should have been
Getting up at dawn,
To comb your hair, calm your nerves
And put your new clothes on.

Today you should have found your pew
Among the busy crowd.
To join your hands, among your friends
And say your prayers aloud.

Today you should have proudly stood
At the altar in our Church.
And received onto your heart
Dear Jesus, who you love so much.

Today will not bring the
Celebrations as expected.
But this strange thing will pass, and bring
A community more connected.

Today you must enjoy the time
With those who love you dear,
And look forward to your special day
Which will come, don’t you fear.

We look forward to the day when we can celebrate this beautiful sacrament together.
