Photography for the Sacraments

We have arranged for a local photographer to be available at the Church and afterwards at the school on Saturday May 12th for our P4 children and parents on their First Communion Day.

County Photos will be coming along to take photographs for Confirmation on Sunday May 20th. They will take individual photographs of the children being anointed in St Mary's Church and then individual and family photographs back at the school following the ceremony.


 Our total for Trocaire this year was just over £816- Well done everyone.

That's it for this week,
