St Anne’s celebrates the contribution young people make to our parish. We thank them sincerely for sharing their giftedness with us and we seek to support our youth as they grow in faith.
Our Lady of Mercy Primary School and Mercy Secondary College, along with Summerhill College welcome in a special way their links with St Anne’s parish, and for this we thank the school principals, teachers, staffs and Boards of Management.
Altar Servers are always welcome with the support and participation of their parents / guardians. They are usually recruited through the schools and the monthly rota is arranged to fit in with the wishes of families as best we can.
We also have a number of youth who proclaim the Word of God at our weekend Masses. If you would like to share in the Ministry of the Word by reading, please contact the Parish Office.
Confirmation Faith Friends
For several years now, St Anne’s parish has had a most successful Faith Friends Programme, in which some of the Transition Year students in Mercy College after a short training undertake
to share with the Confirmation Classes what their own Confirmation has meant for themselves so as to inspire them to Christian living. Bishop Kevin was greatly impressed by their ministry at last year’s Confirmation.
