What is Ceiliúradh na nÓg?

The purpose of Ceiliúradh na nÓg is to develop the faith life of Transition and Fifth year students. This will be achieved through school or parish based initiatives.

The programme forms part of a comprehensive approach to Youth Ministry initiated by the Diocese of Kerry. It is coordinated by the Diocesan Advisor in collaboration with the principals, teachers, chaplains and students of the diocesan Post-Primary schools.

For the academic year 2019-2020, the programme will be carried out through a number of stages. The students will actively participate in a faith based programme of exploration, action, reflection and presentation.

The Celebration Day for Ceiliúradh na nOg will take place on Wednesday, March 25th 2020 in the Brandon Hotel, Tralee.  Notes on how to prepare the presentation can be found in the resource booklet – see link above.

The guest speaker for this year’s event is Fr. Chris O’ Donnell.  Chris is a priest of the Limerick Diocese.  He originally worked as a primary teacher in Naas.  Since being ordained he has spent the majority of his time happily working with youth people.  He is currently serving as a priest in Kilmallock and the surrounding parishes.

Chris O'Donnell

The theme for the day is #LittleThings – “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed…. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20.  He will look at the little things young people can do on a life and faith front to be more positive.

I greatly look forward to meeting with all the students and teachers as we experience how the students lived out the joy of Christ through their various projects and faith activities.
