A Mercy Day to Remember

A Mercy Day to Remember

It was a Mercy Day like no other for Mary Immaculate Secondary School. Today church and school stood united in celebration of our wonderful 30 Mary Immaculate Secondary School students and 11 primary school students who received the gift of the Holy Spirit today. It is a unique and historic involvement for our secondary school.

These are exceptional times, and it is in exceptional times, when we work together for our community, we see unique and wonderful things happen. Confirmation is an enlightenment, it is a moment to welcome the Holy Spirit into our lives. We pray that each of our young people today and their families know that Christ and the Holy Spirit is with them in their lives, always. Many thanks to our old friend Bishop Brendan Kelly, Fr Robert Mc Namara and Lisdoonvarna primary school Principal Brian Carty, Lourda Dunne and all who helped with the occasion. To our singers Joanna Kelly and Aisling Vaughan, our Musicians Oisín and Cian Marsh and Aine Hegarty, our Music Teacher Ms Dunne, our RE teacher Mr Slattery, you were all superb.

The sisters of Mercy founded our school over 70 years ago. Today is a celebration of their founding vision and their determination, it is a day to celebrate our school of all faiths. The solidarity of church and school communities today illustrates a living mission, alive and well. It is a day to celebrate all that is unique about our community, students and our CEIST school, on this very special, Mercy Day.
