Friday 8th March all the classes from the school went down to the Church in Bride Street to celebrate St. John of God Day.

Fr. James welcomed a large crowd to this very special Mass that celebrates the life's work of the man who the school is named after but as Fr. James explained also gave his name to the various St. John of God groups spread throughout the world who still look after the health, education and welfare on many, many people.

Mr. Murphy's 6th Class, as part of their Confirmation preparation, did the Readings, the Prayers of the Faithful, brought up the Gifts and provided the Altar servers while Ms. Foran and Ms. Mullins had the Choir in 'tip-top' form and their contribution to the Mass was very much appreciated.

There must be a special mention to Ms. Murphy and Ms. Foley's 2nd classes who had made their First Confession the night before and sang 'Zacchaeus' with great gusto just after Communion.

Ms. Murphy's 1st Class concluded the Mass with a beautiful rendition of 'the John of God' anthem ....Man of Compassion.

Even the slight rain on the way back up the Faythe didn't dampen the spirits of all the children who had been promised a 'No Written Homework Night' as his thanks for how well they participated and behaved.
