About this Event

Event Details - 25th January 2020

It is with great joy and gratitude that we are celebrating 100 years of continued presence of the Salesians in Copsewood, Pallaskenry.

The Centenary Celebration will give us an opportunity to meet with all our friends and reconnect with the many great friends we made while we attended school in Pallaskenry. We extend a warm welcome to all our past staff, students, Salesians, teachers, parents and friends. The evening will commence at 6.30pm with a Drinks Reception followed by a 4 course meal after which a fantastic band 'Truly Diverse' will provide entertainment for the remainder of the evening. Please reserve your tickets here on Eventbrite as the demand will be very high for this event.

You are invited to attend Mass, which will be celebrated in the College Chapel at 12 noon also on the Saturday, 25th January. Light refreshments will be served after Mass in the School Canteen (Refectory). Fr John Campion will be Chief Celebrant accompanied by many Salesians who you know. People will also have an opportunity to walk the corridors and classrooms and reminisce of past school days.

Fr Aloysius Sutherland (First Rector) and four Salesians moved into Copsewood House on the feast day of the Immaculate Conception on the 8th December 1919. Since then and up till now many more great Salesian Priests and Brothers arrived in Pallaskenry and have held a special place in the hearts and minds of many generations of young people from many parts of the country. Their presence of creating a Salesian Centre where young people and teachers come together to create a school, a home, a church and a playground has been the experience of students both past and present. Their experience in Copsewood as students has greatly contributed to their formation as adults to become what Don Bosco called, 'Honest Citizens and Good Christians'. We thank the Salesian Priests and Brothers who have committed their whole lives to the care and promotion of all the young people who were in their care and the great legacy they have passed on.

The Salesians can be very proud of what they have achieved in 100 years and proud of passing on the spirit and ethos of Don Bosco to all the lay people who will keep the spirit of Don Bosco alive and strong.

We are looking forward to meeting you on the 25th January 2020 and catching up with friends who belong to the Salesian Family.

Best Wishes,

Paddy O Neill and the Centenary Celebration Team.
