Soften your Hearts Campaign

June 20th, 2018

The world needs soft hearts; too many people are alone and excluded. Blessed John Sullivan was an ordinary man who did small acts of kindness with such softness of heart that he became extraordinary.

Are you prepared to choose a day to do something in John Sullivan’s spirit ofkindness?

Suggestions: Any time during your chosen day

Gadgets: switch off for a while and be fully present to people.

Smile: nothing expresses a warm heart as much as a smile.

Food treats: skip some in solidarity with those who are hungry.

Unfairness: Unfair things may have happened to you.

Soften your heart to them.

Loose change: Give it with a warm heart to a needy person.

World suffering: Syria—Don’t feel powerless and overwhelmed. Allow suffering people into your heart—That’s powerful action—Believe it

Stressed out? Too stressed to do anything? Look at a sunset and know we’re all connected.

Scoil Bhride Confirmation Retreat

June 19th, 2018

img_6293The Retreat Day for the Confirmation Class from Scoil Bhride, which was called off in the Spring because of the heavy snowfalls, took place eventually on Friday 1st June.

The girls were delighted to travel to Glendalough with their teachers, Ms May and Ms McKenna, Principal Ms Hennessey,  Deacon John Dunleavy and Trish O’Neill, for a day of walking, hearing the stories of St Kevin and of Monastic life in Glendalough, and prayer. The lovely Parish Church of St Kevin in Laragh was the finishing point, where they brought together all the memories of their Confirmation year and looked forward to the adventures and challenges to come as they prepare to finish their time in Scoil Bhride and move into the next level in their education.
