29/03/2007 LORETO STUDENTS HELP ST VINCENT DE PAUL

It has been a busy term for the St Vincent de Paul Youth group at Loreto College Coleraine, culminating in a day of bag packing at the Coleraine Asda store last weekend.

Meeting weekly under the leadership of Loreto Religious Education teacher Mr Kevin Conroy and student SVP president Sorcha Mellon, the group undertakes a programme of regular visits to a local retirement home, where the students have formed strong relationships with the residents.  Special events have been held in the context of these visits, such as a Valentine’s Day event.

On Saturday 24th March, a group of twenty-one sixth form students from Loreto College took part in a bag-packing day at Asda.  Working from 10am until 6pm, the students raised an outstanding £945, which will go to support the work of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in the local community.

The students were congratulated on their generosity and commitment by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College Coleraine.
