Solemn Votive Mass – September 2019

Dear All,    

Just a note to say a sincere thank you to all those who attended the annual school Mass in DCU St. Patrick’s Campus last Tuesday.  There was a very large turnout and the Mass was celebrated by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin.

We would like to thank the Mater Dei Education Centre for hosting the event.

The lovely singing came from the pupils in Loreto Secondary School in Balbriggan; and we would also like to thank the third level students who acted as ambassadors on the night and the St. Patrick’s Chaplaincy Team who were in attendance.

A big thank you to the representatives from Coláiste Mhuire Cabra and from Pobalscoil Iosolde Palmerstown who read the Prayers of the Faithful.

A special thanks to the local pupils of Scoil Mhuire Griffith Ave., and St. Patrick’s Boys’ National School Drumcondra, for attending from the Primary sector; and local pupils from St. Joseph’s CBS Fairview who attended from the Post-Primary sector.

Thank you again to all those who attended as it was a great opportunity for everybody to meet and ‘catch-up’ with each other. 

We hope to see you all again next year.

Le gach dea-ghuí,

Mgr. Dan O'Connor

Episcopal Vicar for Education
