Celebrate 2014 Photos

Date: 22 Nov 2014

A large crowd turned out in Cork on Thursday night (20th November) for Celebrate 2014! - a special gathering on the eve of the Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple. Take a look at some photos from the event above.

The attendance included representatives from the Presentation Brothers Schools Trust (PBST), past-pupils unions, Edmund Rice Action Camps (ERAC), S.H.A.R.E., PresLink, Presentation Associates, Presentation Brothers, CLEO, Lux Edmundi, as well as many friends and family.

The theme for the evening was 'The Challenge of Pope Francis to the Presentation Family" and included short presentations by young adults who had recently been on pilgrimage to Rome, on an immersion experience in Ghana and involved in a summer camp in Cork city. Br Kevin Mascarenhas also spoke about the work of the Integration and Support Unit at Waterford, while Peter Hyde, Deputy Principal at Deerpark CBS described the effect of participating in CLEO has had on his teaching and faith life.

The gathering started and ended with prayer. Download the prayer sheet here. (pdf)
