15/04/2014 MASS CELEBRATES ROLE OF LORETO COMMUNITY IN COLERAINE

As the Spring Term drew to a close at Loreto College, the feast of Easter was celebrated with a special Mass to mark the contribution of the Loreto Community to education and local society in Coleraine, since 1930.

The Mass, celebrated by His Grace the Bishop of Derry, the Most Reverend Dr Donal McKeown, was held at Loreto College on Tuesday 15th April, and united the Liturgy of the Easter season with prayers of thanksgiving for the work of the Loreto Community in Coleraine for so many years.

The Mass was attended by all students and members of staff of Loreto College, as well as by many invited guests, representing Loreto Education throughout Ireland.

The Mass featured moving performances by Loreto’s choirs and soloists, as well as reflections and prayers of thanksgiving and dedication in honour of the Loreto Sisters.

Speaking at the Mass, Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, said that all students at staff of the College owed a tremendous debt of gratitude to the members of the Loreto Community, for their continual support, prayers and care. Mr James paid tribute to the Loreto Sisters for their tireless support of the College and the interest and delight they take in the education and activities of so many generations of young people on the Loreto campus.

As the academic year moves forward towards examination season, the students of Loreto are grateful for the prayers of the Loreto Sisters for their success and well-being through the challenges ahead. As the years continue, the relationship between the school and the Loreto Community remains strong, with the ethos of the Community informing the academic, pastoral and extra-curricular life of Loreto College.
