Papal Nuncio Visit
Updated: Mar 23, 2020
The 6th class pupils of Dunboyne S.P.S are currently busy preparing for their Confirmation. As part of this preparation, the pupils of 6th class decided to write to the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Jude Thaddeus OKOLO, to invite him to celebrate Catholic Schools Week with us here in Dunboyne. Catholic Schools Week ran from 19th – 25th January 2020. The Papal Nuncio joined us on Wednesday 22nd for mass at 11:00. He spoke about the beauty of God’s creation and how we should care for our common home. This is the main theme of the Laudato Si, the Pope’s message to the world.
After the very engaging celebration of mass, the Papal Nuncio walked to the school where he joined the pupils from 6th class for a presentation on all of the work they have done on environmental awareness and protection.
