On Thursday 29th September we gathered as a community to celebrate the Opening of School Year Mass in St. Vincent De Paul Church, Marino. Fr. Tom Noone celebrated our Mass with us and blessed our school community for the coming year. We reflected on the values of our school and the symbolism of the Sunflower. We were encouraged to be like the sunflower. “Be like the sunflower that follows every movement of the sun and keep your eyes always towards our God”. We formally welcomed all the first year students and new members of our Maryfield Community. There were presentations to our newly appointed sixth year prefects and the four students who represented Maryfield on the Dublin Diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes. Thank you to all who participated so wonderfully in the Liturgy.
