Scoil Bhride - In November We Remember

Here, In Scoil Bhride, Mercy Secondary School, Tuam, Co. Galway, we enjoyed a very beautiful service yesterday on the theme of In November We Remember. Our school chaplain, Sr. Teresa Nolan and her team, prepared a lovely service for all the school community including the parents and family-members who attended.

The readings, prayers and responsorial psalm were all performed by our newest students, our 1st years. Their 1st year choir, directed by Mrs Mary Murphy, led the school in song.

The 1st years made posters of a beloved relative who had passed away and these touching tributes were hung up on the wall of the venue for all to read.

In school, we have a bare-leafed tree on which the girls have hung paper leaves inscribed with the names of their dead. It is a simple and quietly-powerful sight and helps us recall our loved ones who have passed away.
