Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal - Can you help?

Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal 

We will be putting together the shoeboxes in Celbridge church on the 12th of November 2017 at 11:30 a.m. We would be really grateful to see as many children and adults as possible to help us with this. 
We have left Team Hope boxes in the back of each of the churches and would hugely appreciate donations of shoeboxes, toys, teddies, sweets, soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, small clothing items, hats, scarfs, copy books, pens, pencils etc, or if you would like to sponsor the delivery cost of a parish shoebox the cost of this is €4-00.
If anybody has any free time during the month of November to help us in the sort centre please contact Claire on 086 0640547. A huge thanks again to the parishioners who helped us last year.

Farewell Ms. Downey

Some pics from the recent Retirement assembly for Brid Downey who was a much valued member of staff at Primrose Hill (our parish school) for 10 years - She will be greatly missed! We wish Brid a long and healthy retirement. Staff and Students alike paid tribute to Brid's generous good humour and her care for the whole school community.
