On Monday 4th March, 6th class had a retreat with Fr. Paddy Moran. This was to help us prepare for our Confirmation on 6th April.
Fr. Paddy Moran was a missionary in Ethiopia for 11 years. For some of his time in Ethiopia he worked in a prison called Arba Minch.
The first thing he did with us was he talked about the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit. He also showed us some paintings people from the Ethiopian Prison completed. All of us had to write about our favourite picture and why we liked it. After that we were put into groups of 3 and showed it to 5th class.
Then Fr. Paddy Moran taught us how to count to 10 in the Ethiopian language.
Before he left Fr. Paddy got us to vote for our favourite picture and he gave it to us for the school.
I enjoyed this retreat with Fr. Paddy Moran.
