This blog post emphasizes the 'KH Nappy Drive' initiative and encourages readers to contribute to supporting homeless mothers at the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin.


The KH Nappy Drive initiative is in full swing, spearheaded by the proactive efforts of 4L & 4M students. Their mission is to provide essential support to homeless mothers at the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin, and your contributions can make a meaningful impact.

We’re calling upon the kindness and generosity of our community to donate nappies, wipes, formula, baby toys, and non-perishable food items. These simple yet vital items can greatly alleviate the challenges faced by homeless mothers striving to provide for their babies.

You can drop off your donations at designated locations: F2 (Ms. McGinn’s) and A2 (Ms. Moore’s). Every contribution matters and will directly benefit these mothers in need.

Together, let’s extend our helping hands and show our support to these resilient mothers who deserve our care and consideration. Your involvement in the ‘KH Nappy Drive’ can make a significant difference in their lives.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity. Your participation will contribute to building a more supportive and caring community for everyone.

Darkness Into Light 2023, the annual walking event and fundraiser, brought hope and unity to Ireland on Saturday, May 6th.

At 4:15am, participants walked or ran 5km to meet the sunrise, symbolising the end of darkness and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.

Since its inception in 2009 with just 400 participants, the event has grown to over 150,000 each year, providing a powerful opportunity for people to support their community and those affected by suicide.

This year, Canon Campion and members of his Chapel Committee joined in the beautiful morning event, moved by the uplifting music and the collective spirit of hope and healing.

Congratulations to all the organizers and participants who made this event a success!
