09/05/2013 LEAVERS’ MASS FOR YEAR 14 CELEBRATED AT LORETO COLLEGE

Year 14 students – the class of 2013 – and their parents celebrated the end of seven happy years at Loreto College with the teaching staff of the school at a special Mass held on the evening of Thursday 9th May, celebrated by Father Raymond McCullagh. The theme of the Mass was ‘Keep It Lit, inspired by the carrying on of the light of baptism, of family, and of friendship. The Mass celebrated the friendship the students (and their teachers) have shared, something which, it is hoped, is not to be left behind as the students close the classroom doors for the last time. As the students finish timetabled lessons and face the challenges of the A2 examinations, the evening was an opportunity to reflect on happy memories, with laughter, tears, song and prayer.  There were moving and uplifting speeches from Head Girl Aileen McAlister, Head Boy Niall Reid, Head of Year 14 Mrs Schira McGoldrick and College Principal Mr Michael James. Musical contributions from a group of talented singers and instrumentalists lent a tone of emotional reflection to the evening, which concluded with a big-screen display of photos from throughout the seven years which the class of 2013 spent at Loreto.

In the last fortnight, Masses have also been celebrated at Loreto College for the Year 12 and Year 13 examination classes.  As the examination period approaches, everyone at Loreto College wishes the Year 12, 13 and 14 students perseverance in their studies and every success in their examinations – and beyond.
