We attended Ian’s valedictory mass and dinner last night. Officially, it was Ian’s graduation and he is now no longer a student of St. Kevin’s, although he will still have to sit for his exams at the school. The mass and dinner went well and was much the same as Jie’s valedictory (click here). What was interesting this time around, was that the priest celebrating the mass, Fr. Gerarld Sullivan, was an old boy of St. Kevin’s who was there from 1931 to 1933! He’s 93 years old today, but you couldn’t tell that from the way he celebrated mass and gave the sermon.
Also, Mary and I were calculating and figured out that if all goes to plan, we will still be attending a valedictory at St. Kevin’s in about 14 years’ time, when Ren graduates. I would be a doddering 61 year old by then!
