Catholic School Week:
Next week is Catholic School Week. On Wednesday last, Bishop Denis Nulty launched the event in the Cathedral Carlow. 5 representatives from every school in the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin were invited to attend a special prayer service. Our 6th class made a special Prayer Petition Box which was blessed by the Bishop during the service and all schools were given an icon of the Holy Family in preparation for the World Meeting of Families taking place in Dublin next August. We hope to use our Prayer Petition Box over the coming weeks.
