The feast day of Saint Macartan falls on the 24th of March. It is an important event in the life of our school and each year it is marked with a celebration of Mass in the College Sports Hall. The Mass also has appropriate instrumental performances from School Musicians and the College Choir sing some lovely uplifting songs. At the conclusion of the Mass there are tree plantings carried out by each of the First Year Classes.

 The Collect of St Macartan's Day

Heavenly Father,
we thank you for Macartan, faithful companion of Saint Patrick,
and builder of your church in Clogher:
Build up your church through those whom you call to leadership
in this generation,
and strengthen your church to proclaim the gospel
of reconciliation and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
