Lord, pour out your Spirit of wisdom on students.
Help then to remain calm and to attend carefully to the questions asked.
Help them to think clearly, to remember accurately, and to express themselves well.
May they reflect the best of the work they have done, and the best of the teaching they have received.
Accept their best efforts in these examinations and in the great test of life on earth.
May your love be upon them O Lord, as they place all their trust in you.

Inclusive of everything (also brass Sanctuary Lamp holder), the total cost amounted to €5046.25. Should anyone wish to assist in defraying part of the cost, any donations would be appreciated.

I wish to acknowledge with grateful appreciation the receipt of €500 from parishioners kind donations towards the Tabernacle.
