Congratulations to our Ember Team as they completed their programme this week in Clonliffe college.
The students were trained to become faith leaders and mentors in the school. The girls worked closely with our junior classes and organised a number of events throughout the year. In recent months they have worked with the 2 Beech class. They acted as mentors to the second years and offered support and guidance to them.
During their graduation ceremony yesterday they had the opportunity to meet Fr Peter McVerry. Fr Peter set up a homeless charity in Dublin. He spoke about the remarkable work that he carries out in Dublin. He told the Ember graduates that we cannot judge someone and challenged us to look past labels that we often place on homeless people. It was wonderful to witness his passion and commitment for those most vulnerable in society. Pics
