Celebration of first holy communion – 26 May 2013

Fifteen children from Our Lady of the Wayside and St Cillians schools made their first holy communion here in Our Lady of the Wayside Church, Bluebell.

The children have been preparing for their big day with the close cooperation of their parents / guardians, teachers and the liturgy group since October through the “Do this in memory of me” programme.

Fr Tomasz was joined by Fr Monaghan at this 11am mass.  The resident combined adult and children choirs provided the singing.  The sun shone brightly in what was to be a beautiful day.

Sr Anne made specific reference to the Sacred Space.  Here the children have been placing symbolic items throughout the year.  She suggested that parents, relatives and friends come and have a look at the Sacred Space (see below).

Congratulations to all the children!

We were enriched by your presence and we will continue to pray for and support you in whatever way we can.

Sr Mairead Holton

Sr Mairead Holton

A mass to celebrate the life of Sr Mairead Holton, CHF was held at the 6.30 vigil mass.  Mairead was sadly taken from us on 23 April 2013 when she peacefully passed away.  It was a wonderful turnout – members of her close and extended family joined with Bluebell and visiting Mary Immaculate and St Michael’s parishes and colleagues from the Holy Faith Sisters to remember Mairead.  Tribute was paid to her outstanding and unselfish contribution to all aspects of life in the Inchicore and Bluebell parishes.

The folk group, resident choir for the vigil mass provided wonderful singing.


Tea / coffee and some delicious home baking served in the Josie Hunt Kitchen afterwards allowed those who attended to chat and reminisce.
