ST. MARGARET’S HIGH SCHOOL/ ST. DOMINIC’S PRIMARY SCHOOL
“I know you will all share a deep sense of loss following the terrible fire which destroyed St. Dominic’s Primary on Thursday 26th March.
I have been working with colleagues across the Council and the plan is that from Monday 20th April 2015 all St. Dominic’s primary school pupils will be relocating to St. Margaret’s High School. Supervised transport provision will be provided from the local area and a secure area will be developed on the first floor of St. Margaret’s building. A small number of English classrooms will be converted and staff areas created during the Easter holidays.
As you may be aware St. Dominic’s Primary School was planned to be replaced with a new 21st century building and I have been advised that planning will be brought forward to achieve this at an earlier date.
Stephen Snee, Acting Head Teacher.”

THOSE BEING ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL
Please inform Father Hughes of your intended stay in Hospital.
In preparation for going, you may want to receive the Sacrament of Sick.
When being admitted to the Ward please inform those in charge
that you are a Roman Catholic and would be happy to see the Chaplain.
Often Holy Communion is distributed in hospitals on a Sunday.
EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT:
Every Friday evening there is a Holy Hour
from 7.00 till 8.00 p.m.
This is where you have an opportunity to spend time before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
Just being still and quiet in His presence and letting his love come to you will fill your hearts and souls with a calm serenity and peace of mind.
So at the end of a hard and stressful week why not come and spend a few moments to experience the great peace and tranquility that will see you through the week ahead.
