Posted on 2020-09-17 11:14:02

CONFIRMATION ARRANGEMENTS 2020 - Confirmation for Glasheen Boys' School is scheduled for Friday 2nd October 2020 @ 9.30 a.m. (Mr. Marshall's Class) and 11.30 a.m. (Mr. T. O'Neill's Class), also in The Lough Church. Again, there will be a strict limit to the numbers in the church, to comply with public health guidelines, so it will be the confirmation child and two adults. One seat will be allocated to each boy & the two adults accompanying him. A parent is very welcome to act as sponsor, or sponsor by proxy. The suggested dress code for the ceremony is that pupils may wear their secondary school uniforms.   

COMMUNION ARRANGEMENTS 2020

Posted on 2020-09-17 11:09:34

COMMUNION ARRANGEMENTS 2020 -          First Communion for Glasheen Boys' School is scheduled, subject to public health advice, on Saturday 26th September 2020, in The Lough Church @ 12 noon (Ms. Buttimer's Class) and 2.00 p.m. (Ms. Byrne's Class). Unfortunately, numbers in the church, on the day, will be restricted, to comply with public health guidelines. One seat will be allocated to each boy & two adults accompanying him. The boy will sit on the outside of the seat. The suggested dress code for the ceremony is the school uniform, with white shirt, Communion rosette is optional.  As the First Penance ceremony could not take place, general absolution will be given to all of the boys at the start of the First Communion ceremony. We would ask all boys to be in their seats, 15 minutes before the ceremony begins.

PARK & STRIDE

A reminder to please park & stride to school. Please don't block School Avenue, by dropping your children out of the car, while in a line of traffic. This is unsafe and unfair on other road users. Many thanks for your co-operation.
