St. Joseph’s Rochfortbridge News – September 2018

Mercy Day

On Monday 24th September we celebrated Mercy Day here in St Joseph’s Secondary School, Rochfortbridge. 64 years ago our school was set up by the Mercy sisters in a spirit of care, compassion and generosity. We are proud to continue our tradition as a Mercy School in the spirit of all of these great qualities. Our students have put together a display of all of the mercies that we are thankful for in our lives and we also celebrated mass to give thanks.

CEIST Congratulates St Josephs Rochfortbridge on their new Sacred-Space/Chapel

This year St Josephs Rochfortbridge have put a lot of resources into developing an adjoining convent building, which was generously gifted to the school by the Sisters of Mercy.  Convent rooms have been converted into additional classroom and meeting room space for use by the school. In particular the school has refurbished a lovely small convent church, which  will now be used as a scared space and as a space for smaller class masses.
