Patrickswell and Ballybrown National Schools follow the “Do This in Memory of Me” programme, attending monthly Mass with the necessary preparation. A significant part of the programme will take place at Sunday masses during the year.

The Patrickswell First Eucharist class attends the 11.30am Mass on Sunday, while Ballybrown attends the Saturday evening Mass at 8.00pm and the Sunday 10.00am Mass, every second month.

A preparation team is set up in June to prepare the children for the Masses.

Towards the end of September each year, parents are advised of the particular dates and Masses to attend with their children, and children are given their “Do this in Memory of Me” pack.
