Catholic Schools Week 2017

Bishop Brendan was Principal Celebrant at Diocesan Mass celebrating Catholic Schools Week. The Mass was celebrated in the Cathedral of The Annunciation and St Nathy, Ballaghaderreen and was co-ordinated by Srs Regina Lydon and Mary Richardson, Diocesan Advisors to Primary Schools.  Children from schools throughout the diocese, together with families and teachers were in attendance.  Many of the priests of the diocese were also present.

We include here some photos from the celebration.  Many thanks to all who took part. It was a worthy celebration of school life in our diocese.

Bishop Brendan receiving Offertory Gifts during Mass for Catholic Schools Week, 2016

The bishop and people of Achonry Diocese gathered in the Cathedral of The Annunciation and St Nathy, Ballaghaderreen to celebrate Catholic Schools Week.  Bishop Brendan was the Principal Celebrant at the Eucharist.  He was joined by people from the parishes of the diocese, with many schools represented and children taking part in the liturgy. It was an uplifting celebration.  In his homily, Bishop Brendan spoke of Jesus as “teacher” and of the broad canvas that is “Catholicism“.
