Message to parents and guardians of the boys and girls in St. Paul’s Special School who are enrolled for First Holy Communion:
Dear parents and guardians,
Greetings and Happy Easter from the parish and St. Paul’s!
There is still much uncertainty as to when the restrictions placed on us for our safety will be lifted. With both Masses and school suspended, we are living through a challenging period of our history. 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 the 28th of 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 (www.facebook.com/beaumont.parish) 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!
Adrian (Principal) and Fr. Robert.
