Cor­pus Christi Mass

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

The chil­dren of 6th class and 2nd class at­tended a beau­ti­ful Cor­pus Christi Mass in St Mo­chonóg’s on Sun­day as a fol­low up to their re­cent Con­fir­ma­tion and First Holy Com­mu­nion sacra­ments.

Mem­bers of the 6th class group opened the mass with a pro­ces­sion up to the al­tar. Scrap­books made by 6th class and writ­ings by 2nd class were pre­sented as sym­bols of the chil­dren’s re­flec­tions on their sacra­ments. Fr David com­mended 6th class on how dis­tinctly they did the read­ings and the Prayers of the Faith­ful were read beau­ti­fully by mem­bers of 2nd class.

Of­fer­tory gifts were brought up by chil­dren from 2nd class and the two classes sang to­gether through­out this cel­e­bra­tion. One of the girls from 6th class read out a Com­mu­nion Re­flec­tion, be­fore the two classes gath­ered on the Al­tar for their group photo.

This is the first time in Kil­macanogue that there has been a cel­e­bra­tion Mass com­bin­ing the First Holy Com­mu­nion and the Con­fir­ma­tion groups. Spe­cial thanks are due to Mairead Mur­phy, who has worked with the two classes through­out the year; Sarah King, who co-or­di­nated the 2nd class group on the day; Sylvia Bolger who played the or­gan; and Breda and Alice Con­nolly who or­gan­ised the re­fresh­ments in the Parish Hall af­ter­wards. Most of all, a big thank must go to the par­ents and the chil­dren them­selves who came along in their out­fits from their pre­vi­ous spe­cial day.
