This morning at Assembly a Liturgy for the Dead took place in the Atrium. The Liturgy was presided over by school Chaplain, Fr. Denis.
School Captain Richard Enright read the reading from Ecclesiastes and the school Choir led by Fr. Columba sang to greet the Gospel.
Then candles were lit by students and staff to remember the dead members of their families and also friends who passed away. During the candle lighting ceremony, Tim Hyde played guitar.
For those who participated in the Liturgy it was a meaningful and prayerful event.
May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
