Webcast about our Mission Projects
St. Evin's School was recently invited by Diocesan Advisor, Maeve Mahon, to participate in a webcast which was recorded in our school on Tuesday, October 1st, 2013. This was broadcast to Primary Schools in the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin through iCatholic.ie which is the equivalent of the RTE player or BBC iPlayer for the Irish Church. It was also incorporated in a live broadcast from Bishop's House, Carlow on October 11th. at 12 noon to mark the National Day of Prayer for the Missions.
Maeve learnt of our donation of ( €2,000 / 50,000 dinners ) to Jackie Pallas of The Society of Missionary Children and this explains why she was very interested in highlighting the focus on Missions Work in our school. The filming went very well with interesting and positive contributions from teachers and pupils. The production crew were very impressed with the competence of the pupils who displayed great confidence in front of the camera.
We are delighted to be part of this exciting initiative. The plan for the future is that our webcast will provide an added religious resource for teachers, pupils and school communities.
