St Patrick’s Parish Skerries

Dear boys and girls, parent(s) / guardian(s),

Just to wish you all every blessing on your graduation from Scoil Réalt na Mara.

It has been a great pleasure for me to visit you in your classrooms and help you prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation.  With God’s help your Confirmation day will be celebrated soon

I hope you have enjoyed your years at Réalt na Mara. You’ve been very blessed to have attended such a great school with teachers who have looked after you with such great care.

I know the last few months cannot have been easy for you but I think these uncertain times have helped us all appreciate our family, our friends and our faith in God.

I pray that your secondary school years will be filled with the same goodness and care that you experienced at Réalt na Mara.

Please see below a prayer that will help you as you go through life and that we will pray together on the evening of your graduation.

God bless you all.

Fr. James
