In June, all Year 8 classes had the opportunity to participate in a retreat entitled ‘Your Life is a Gift’. The venue was the Down and Connor Youth Commission in Belfast. Mr Dowd led the sessions with the help of the two Living Youth faith ministry workers Conor and Kiera who started the day with games and ice-breakers. There was music, prayer, discussion, food and plenty of fun. The boys also had the chance to visit the Grotto in Chapel Lane and Mr Dowd brought each class into St Mary’s Chapel and explained the significance of the beautiful furnishings and the importance of the Mass. Ruairi Cunningham (8D) commented that “the retreat was so relaxing. I hope to go again.”
