Carol Service 2017

Posted on : December 23, 2017

The first term officially ended on Friday 22nd December with our annual Christmas Carol Service in Calry Church. The service of Nine Lessons and Carols was officiated by Rev. Partick Bamber, and the SGS choir, under the baton of director Jonathan Carter, sang carols. The congregation got into the Christmas spirit as they sang some best-loved carols with the choir. Lessons were read by teachers, students and representatives of the Boards of Management and Directors while special guests were also invited to read lessons including Fr. Pat Lombard, Rev. Isaac Hanna and Bishop Ferran Glenfield. The retiring collection was in aid of Sligo Social Services and Temple Street Children’s Hospital and in total €800 was collected.  The participants and congregation were  warmly invited back to the school for lunch afterwards. Sligo Grammar School wishes all its staff, students, parents and friends all the best for Christmas and the New Year. For photos of the Carol Service (taken by 2nd yr. Amy Meehan) click HERE
