Dear Parents and Carers,
I am afraid to be informing you with very sad news that Rev.Steve McKenna passed away this morning in the Hospice, he was pain free and peaceful. I have also ensured that a text message has been sent to you today with this message. I will be holding an assembly with the children and staff on Monday morning to inform the pupils of this news, but wanted to ensure you knew before then in case you would prefer to discuss it with your child/ren first.
As soon as I have more information regarding his funeral I will make contact in writing. Please keep Maureen McKenna and the rest of the family in your prayers.
Mrs Nikki O'Dwyer
Prayer for those who mourn
Bless those who mourn, eternal God,
with the comfort of your love
that they may face each new day with hope
and the certainty that nothing can destroy
the good that has been given.
May their memories become joyful,
their days enriched with friendship,
and their lives encircled by your love.
