On Friday, we were blessed to be able to come together for the first time in 3 years, to celebrate the Beginning of the 2023 School Year with a whole school liturgy.
As a Kildare Ministries School steeped in the Brigidine Tradition, the liturgy was based around the 2023 theme of ‘Be not Afraid! Take Courage. Arise!’.
The liturgy began with the welcoming of the Year 7 and new students and staff to the College, with the theme of courage continuing throughout the ceremony, through prayer, song and speakers.
The Commissioning of Student Leaders for 2023 by Fr Mihn Tran, Mrs Quinn and Ms Semjonov, concluded the liturgy.
Clonard College is extremely proud to have many students who lead with strength and kindliness and uphold our values of justice, hope, compassion, wonder, hospitality and courage.
Thank you to all the staff, students and guests, who gathered to celebrate the special occasion, despite the warm conditions.
A special thank you to all the teams involved in making the morning possible, including our Catholic Identity, maintenance, administration, music, ICT and AV teams, student leaders and staff.
