First Communion for pupils in St. Patrick's National School, Corracrin, was held
in St. Patrick's Church, Corracrin, on Saturday April 29th 2017. Celebrant was Fr.
Hubert Martin and pupils from the school made up the choir. Teachers from the school
were involved in all aspects, with Ms. Deery having the main responsibility for organising
the event and preparing the pupils. The Chapel was appropriately decorated again
by the teachers and pupils and the pupils were very involved in the Liturgy. At the
end Fr. Hubert thanked all who contributed to the occasion highlighting the work
done by the teachers in the school. He thanked the parents for their major input
and congratulated the pupils who were receiving First Communion and complimented
them on how they had all carried out their duties so expertly and reverently. Then
parent Darren Swift conducted presentations to Fr. Hubert, Ms. Deery and Ms. Landers,
thanking them for their work in preparation and implementation of First Communion
for these pupils.
