Our School Faith Development

Our school is enriched by the presence of a school chaplain who visits the school regularly.  He works with the Religious Education teachers in fostering the spiritual development of each student.  Individual and class visits to the school Séipéilín, together with mass and retreats for year groups provide opportunities for students to deepen their faith and their relationship with God.
