Golden Jubilee Celebrations at St. Paul’s

Yesterday, we had a wonderful day to celebrate 50 years of primary education in St. Paul’s. Canon Devine led us in a beautiful mass in St. Peter’s and Paul’s.  The children from first class and the parish choir enhanced the liturgy with their beautiful hymns.  Tara, Mikey, Victory, April, Libby and Krzysztof brought up the gifts and symbols of school life. Readings and Prayer of the Faithful were read by Margot Shanagher, Deirdre Flood, Leonora Hanley, Denise Wykes, Bernie Corrigan, Sr. Gerardine Kelly, Breege O’Connor and Marek Cieslinski.  A beautiful Communion reflection Because of You by Heather Price was read by Mrs. Connaughton.  Canon launched the commemorative book  “A Time of Little Great Things”.  After mass we all returned to the school for a reception where past pupils, teachers and old friends reminisced about their time in St. Paul’s.  Roll books were perused and photos were enjoyed.  Many thanks to all the past pupils, former teachers and friends of our school who joined us on the day.
