The Clonard Youth ministry team came to talk to all Year 14s to help them to explore this time of transition in their lives. They flagged up the fact we are heading into the Lenten season and explored some actions students could engage in during Lent 2018. Brendan Dineen the team leader explored a little of the history of the Redemptorist Order, analysing in particular the conjoined image of the heart & the cross.
They introduced several opportunities open to pupils aged fifteen and over, including the Explore Programme that Clonard is organising over 4 weeks during Lent, registration forms for this Programme are available from Miss Connolly R3. They also introduced their summer programme to be held in Grenada Spain this July. Note volunteers for the June Clonard Novena are as always very welcome.

Finally we would like to thank the team who prepared the presentations with such care and led the Year group in quiet reflection.
