St Mary’s Ballina Students Volunteer for the World Meeting of Families

On Sunday 26th August a group of 40 of our students travelled as volunteers under CEIST to the Papal Mass in the Phoenix Park. They acted as assistants to Eucharistic ministers. They had a wonderful experience, formed friendships with other students from Ceist schools and created memories for life.

Below are some pictures of the group leaving from St. Mary’s Ballina in the morning and arriving to the Papal Mass later that day.
