P.4 First Holy Communion 2023

13th May 2023

Huge congratulations to all our P.4 children on receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion today (Sat 13th May 2023) in St. John’s Church, Gilford. All of the children were so reverent and respectful throughout the service and certainly did their parents, families, teachers and indeed our whole school and parish community proud. Well done boys and girls, we hope you enjoyed your special day!

Many thanks to Fr. Loughran for conducting such a beautiful ceremony; to Odhrán, our Altar server; to Catherine McEvoy for taking family group photos and to all our staff for their help in getting the Church ready for this special occasion. Thanks also to Mr King & Miss Farnon for their hard work and meticulous planning in preparing the children. Thanks to our School Choir under the direction of Mrs Power & Miss Lennon for the beautiful singing and thanks to Ms Pat McAlinden & Mrs Dolores McConville for the lovely musical accompaniment.

A special word of thanks to those members of staff and parents who helped serve tea and goodies back at school afterwards we are truly thankful. Many thanks to Mrs Joanne Martin (Balance & Bliss Balloons) who donated an amazing balloon display to enhance our decoration in school.
