The Mercy Leaders have been meeting since September and are delighted to be back in the prayer room. The room has been freshly renovated and beautifully decorated for the year ahead.

We are delighted to welcome the large number of new leaders who have joined us in recent weeks from First and Second Year and we are pleased to see the return of students who have been involved over the last few years.

So far this year, the Mercy Leaders attended the Mercy Day Mass and are looking forward to assisting in the fundraising campaign for Mary’s Meals, which will begin in the coming weeks.

For the month of October, the month of the rosary, we have been praying a decade of the rosary each week for particular intentions, such as peace in the Ukraine, and those who are at risk of famine worldwide, particularly in Yemen. We have also prayed for peace for everyone in our school, homes and community. In recent weeks we also remembered the people of Donegal and all affected by the terrible tragedy in Cresslough.

On Tuesday 25th October we were delighted to welcome Sr Brenda Dolphin from the Mercy Order. Sr Brenda talked to us about the work of the Mercy Order and continuing the work of Catherine McAuley through helping the poor and education. Sr Brenda congratulated us on our continued support of Mary's Meals and was very interested in hearing about our School Sponsorship Program.

Our music fundraiser for Mary's Meals will take place in the build up to Christmas. We're really looking forward to the wonderful musical talent that will be on display and raising money, once again, for Mary's Meals.

The Mercy Leader prayer service takes place every Tuesday @1.30 in the Prayer Room. Each week the intentions of the entire school community are prayed for. All staff and students are welcome to attend. Below are photos taken after recent prayer services, where students get a chance to chat and sometimes enjoy lunchtime treats.
