Corpus Christ Procession: this is on Sunday, May 29, at midday. We are delighted to have this age old tradition of carrying the Blessed Sacrament through the streets of towns and villages around the world established again here in Wexford Parish.

The ceremony will begin with the Celebration of Holy Mass at midday on Sunday, May 29, in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Rowe Street by Bishop Denis Brennan. Priests who are available are welcome to concelebrate. Then the procession will continue from Rowe Street to the Church of the Assumption in Bride St via School Street and Roches Terrace and into Bride Street where there will be Prayers and Benediction.

We encourage all the children who have made their First Holy Communion to come along and strew flower petals in the procession, please bring a basket along with you. Other groups are also welcome to join in the procession and members of the public are most welcome. We are looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, May 29, for our celebration of this great Feast Day in Our Church.

Very well done to all our athletes who competed in the primary school sports in Bree. Chloe O'Toole took home gold in the sprint and Tiernan Ruane took silver in the sprint also. The Taghmon N.

Aisling Kelly (Loretto Wexford) won the junior hurdles. Joseph Hanlon (Ramsgrange) was fourth in boys inter walk. Brónagh O'Hanlon (Presentation Wexford) was second in the inter girls hammer.
