On Monday 11th December 2017, Transition Year students took part in a Christmas Carol Service with the residents of Nazareth House.
The story of Jesus’s birth was brought vividly to life through the readings and reflections that were shared by our students.
A beautiful sacred space was prepared with the scene of the Nativity at the centre. Celebrants were encouraged to bring peace and joy to the people of the world, especially to those who are most vulnerable in society.
Ms Mullen led our students and residents in renditions of festive favourites.
Transition Year students prepared a table of Christmas treats for the residents of Nazareth House and enjoyed good conversation with them over a nice warm cup of tea.
This Befriending Project is part of our Transition Year students’ participation in the Young SVP Programme. Our Christmas Carol Celebration in Nazareth House has given our students a wonderful opportunity to experience - first hand - the gift of volunteering in their local community.
We look forward to visiting the residents of Nazareth House in the future for more music, laughter and friendship.
