1st Year Welcome Ceremony
First years celebrated their new life in secondary school with a welcome mass in St Brendan’s parish church on Wednesday 24th October.
Each form class was involved in preparing the mass, participating in the ceremony, doing the readings and saying the prayers of the faithful. The mass was celebrated by our Chaplain Fr John O’Gara and the choir made up of 1st year students accompanied by Mr Quinn on guitar, complemented proceedings with beautiful songs.
Between the hundred students, their 5th year prefects and the Chaplaincy team, the church was nearly full. It was a beautiful ceremony that enabled the boys to reflect on and celebrate this new chapter of their lives in Chanel College.
