This year 25 transition year students took part in the Faith Friends programme, a parish based programme as part of the preparation for confirmation. Over a six week period the students journeyed with 80 confirmation students from Ennis National School, Cloughleigh National School and the Holy Family. In small groups the Rice College students shared their faith own journeys with the 6th class students.
They taught a different topic each week, covering the themes of “Belonging”, “The Holy Spirit” and “Saints”. The Rice College students used worksheets to help prepare the primary school pupils for their Confirmation. On the last Tuesday, after the Faith Friends, our students took part in the Ceremony of Light mass, taking various roles, such as readings, prayers of the faithful and lighting candles.
