Summer 2012 and Broadcast News

Back again, we have been very busy since June 28, however, it is good to get back in touch.  We are now established in the second summer session - it will last until August 31, however, we will continue for some other weeks into September and then begin the 2012-2013 Academic Year on Monday October 1.

Two particular reasons for contacting you all now.  The first is to give some information about the summer; we feel that programmes have gone well so far - by the end of the summer courses we will have had students from 27 different nationalities study at the school.  Classes, electives, activities and students own work and study have kept everybody busy; the 20 hour per week programmes continue, Tuesday and Thursday elective classes, two activities per week and then also the presentations on Wednesday evenings.  Our weekend excursion in July was to Donegal and next weekend we will travel to Kerry from Friday 24 to Sunday 26. 

A particular reason for posting a news item at this time is to inform you of an important event at the school. This event will take place this coming Sunday, August 19.  On that day the Irish national radio and television station, Radio Telifis Eireann (RTE) will broadcast the mass from the chapel of the Divine Word Missionaries community here in Maynooth.  If you can listen on your computer, you will have the opportunity of having the sensation of being here with us again - or for the first time!  For website addresses I would suggest you try  it will be broadcast on the Radio 1 Extra channel.  I believe you can also get it during or after the broadcast on

Students have been practising enthusiastically for this important event and we all hope that everything goes well. Hopefully some of you will be able to listen in and have the feeling of being with us.

We also use this opportunity to let you know that we are continue to think of everybody who spent time at the school in the past.

All the best for now and hope to be back in touch in September.
