Catholic Schools Week 2014
On Tuesday evening, January 28th, Bishop Brendan and people from all over the diocese gathered in the Parish Church, Ballymote to celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving for Catholic Schools Week. The church was filled with people in prayer, the Parish Choir was joined by pupils from Primary and Secondary Schools and provided the most fitting musical backdrop.
It was heart-warming to see so many people attend this Mass and a reminder, if such is needed, of the great value place on Catholic education in our diocese and beyond.
Well done to all involved and, in particular Fr John Maloney and Sr Regina Lydon (Primary Schools Religious Advisers for the diocese), Fr James McDonagh, Fr Greg Hannan and all who made us feel so welcome in Ballymote.
