On Saturday 25th May, twenty seven pupils from St Francis NS made their First Holy Communion at St Oliver Plunkett Church, Blackrock.

The pupils had been prepared for the sacrament in school throughout the year by their class teachers, Sarah Harlin and Annie Sweeney, with the support of parents and Fr Padraig Keenan.

There followed a reception in the school hall, organised by the Parent’s Association of St Francis. The reception was attended by parents and family members of the children, fellow classmates and the school staff. As is tradition in school, it was the parents of next year’s Communion Class who hosted the reception.

Every child has been presented with a souvenir photograph of the Communion Class (pictured above) from our Parent’s Association.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the day so special.
