Third and Fourth Class October Assembly

Opening Prayer

Remember those who kept the faith who always turned to pray

Who showed the love of Jesus in their lives from day to day.

Remember those this special time who live with God above,

All Saints, All Souls, and all our own who live with God in love.

Mr Kearnins                                                                                               

As we light our candle today we remember family and friends who have died. All Souls Day is celebrated on the 2nd of November in the church. Itis a tradition of honouring and respecting the memory of the faithful departed.I’m sure you all know people in your family who gone to heaven or who may be very sick, and also people that are special and important to you . We are going to pray in silence for a minute for all the people mentioned

Mr O’Sullivan’s class read the prayers of the faithful- Eoin, Chloe and Darragh


Prayer One                                                                                                                       

We pray for all those who have died, especially those whom we have known and loved. We pray they enjoy perfect happiness and total fulfilment in eternal life.                                                                                                                                                   


Prayer Two                                                                                   


We pray for our families. May our love for each other support us during good times and bad times. Our family should always be a very important part of our lives.

On the day of the holidays we are asking all the boys and girls in St. Declan’s to dress up in their Halloween clothes and bring in €1 each to your class teacher. We will collect all the money and give it to Temple Street to help all the sick children in hospital.

Student Council

Our Student Council has been elected for the coming year 2019-2020. They represent all the children in the school and are included in many decisions that are made within the school. Ms O’Halloran hosts the meetings and I often pop in to talk to the children about any upcoming events. We are very lucky to have lots of children involved in a number of committees in the school.
