Fr Patrick Moore PP Castlepollard administered the sacrament of First Holy Communion to three children from St Marys NS in Finea Church on Sunday May 21 last. They were Michaela Flynn Mark Lynch and Ryan Moore. All children looked resplendant & were a credit to their parents & teachers who had put so much effort into preparing them for their special day. The following Sunday morning may 29th over in Castletown church ,Fr Moore pp administered the sacrament of First holy communion to eight children from St Michaels NS . They were Nicole Neilon Aoife Delaney Sarah Gurren, Kerri Cassidy Elanor Masterson Alanah Jackson Conor Gaffney & Ronan Reilly where once again all children looked delightful in their beautiful communion outfits. Both ceremonies were very much enhanced by the specially formed childrens choir complimenting the occasion.
