We have had the Faith Friends programme, led by over 30 young people from the parish, who spent four evenings talking with the sixth class groups about faith, community and prayer. The work which they do is an extremely important part of the preparation for Confirmation, and we thank them very sincerely for their commitment and dedication to the programme.
In the past week, Fr Paul, Deacon John and Trish O’Neill spent time with the group on their Confirmation retreat days. These took place in the beautiful location of Glendalough, and involved a walk and reflection in that lovely setting followed by prayer and reflection in the Church of St Kevin in Laragh.
These special days are a break from routine and a time to think about what it means to be part of a faith community.
