May is the Month of Mary.  In P3 we always pray to Mary our Mother.  Fr Tony has set a challenge for all of P3.  Can you guess what it is?

Fr Tony wants all of P3 to learn the Hail Mary over the month of May.

Fr Tony has a little friend who can help you.  Can you guess who it is? Check our St Patrick’s Facebook Page to P1-P3 to hear Fr Tony recite the Hail Mary.
