John Hennessy awarded the Benemerenti Medal

The Benemerenti Medal was awarded to John Hennessy, the Chairperson of the Board of Management of St. Mary’s NS, at a special mass celebrated in the Church of the Sacred Heart, Donnybrook on Thursday 30th December at 16.00. The Benemerenti medal is an honour awarded by the Pope to members of the clergy and laity for service to the Catholic church. The medal was awarded to John Hennessy in recognition of his outstanding contribution to Catholic Education in Donnybrook parish, especially as Chairperson of the Board of Management of St. Mary’s National School. We are all delighted that John’s contribution to St. Mary’s has been recognised by Pope Francis.

Members of the wider school community were represented at the celebration mass including members of staff, Board of Management past and present and Parents' Association.
