The Clonard Missionary Group spoke to Sixth Form students at St Malachy’s High School this week about the Mission that is currently taking place in the local area. The group also delivered a 40 minute reflective session for each form class in Senior School on Monday 15th December in the oratory. The sessions gave the students a chance to reflect during this season of Advent and ignited their interest in taking part in the Clonard Missions. This was a very worthwhile experience for all involved.  

 

Pictured are some Sixth Form students who took part with representatives from the Clonard group.
