The annual Mass in memory of deceased members of the Jes school community will take place this Sunday, November 29.
The Mass, now in its fifth year, brings together pupils past and present, staff past and present, and priests to commemorate those who have died or suffered a bereavement in the past 12 months.
The Mass was the initiative of the late Fr John Humphreys SJ, who passed away last year. Fr Humphreys was the Jesuit superior in Galway up to the time of his illness; he also chaired the school board of management and taught at the school in the seventies and eighties.
This year’s Mass is organised by the Jes Past Pupils’ Union in conjunction with the Jesuit Community in Galway.
The Mass will take place at 11am on Sunday in the Jesuit Church on Sea Road. All those who have a connection to the Jes are welcome to attend.
