CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
This week we celebrate Catholic Schools Week and the theme this year is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith and Resilience.” As our schools are currently closed, I would encourage each family to look at the daily themes for the week and help your children to understand the meaning of these words in the context of our faith and the world we are currently living in.
Monday theme Faith; Tuesday theme Learning; Wednesday theme Love; Thursday theme Resilience; Friday theme Hope.
To mark this week, I will celebrate a special Mass on next Thursday morning at 10.00a.m. for the pupils, their parents, grandparents, the staff and Boards of Management. This Mass can be viewed on our local Church TV and on churchservices.tv/millstreet.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Each time we encounter love, self-sacrifice, service or kindness, we
catch a glimpse of the closeness of God’s kingdom. Our everyday is
pulsing with hints of God’s love, but for us to notice and respond.
