St. Fiachra’s JNS First Holy Communion 2020

23rd April 2020

Message for Second Class Parents and Guardians in St. Fiachra’s JNS


Dear parents and guardians,

Greetings and Happy Easter from the parish and St. Fiachra’s! In these unprecedented and challenging times, we are having to adapt day by day to our present circumstances. We are especially conscious of the boys and girls who are preparing to receive their First Holy Communion. It is almost certain now that the ceremonies planned for May will have to be postponed and possibly for some months. We await updated public health advice on when it will be possible to hold large gatherings of people. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to pray with your children. Mass is broadcast from the parish every day at 10am, including Sundays, through Facebook Live ( and through the telephone (018477740, option 6).

We look forward to the day when we can gather again for Sunday Mass and when the children can receive Holy Communion. We remember the children, their teachers and their families in the Mass regularly. Please ask the children to continue to pray too for all those whose lives are affected by the crisis and for those who are working so hard to keep our society safe and nourished.
God bless you all!

Á. Carbery (Principal) and Fr. Robert Smyth.
