Our Oratory is a central space in the school. It is open to all throughout the day. It provides both staff and pupils a quiet space for prayer and reflection. Mass is celebrated each Monday morning at 8:20am by Father McCaughey. All classes have an allocated time in the Oratory throughout the year. Parents and visitors are most welcome to visit the Oratory.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available to all staff and pupils during the seasons of Lent and Advent. We are indebted to the Priests from the local parishes who assist us each year.
Each season in the Liturgical Year is celebrated in the school. As a school community we support our local and national charities – in particular St Vincent de Paul at Christmas time and Trocaire during Lent.
Just as we mark the beginning of our Year with the celebration of the Eucharist, we also end each year with special Masses to mark the ‘moving on’ of our Years 12 and 14.
