Day three was full of interesting stories.  We read about St. Kevin and his lesson in long suffering, and we heard all about St. Ciaran's gentle spirit and love for animals.
Father gave the kids a lesson in the priest's vestments.......
.....with help from a few volunteers :)

Projects included creating a bird's nest with blackbird eggs, and a silver bell.
For a bit of outdoor excitement, egg relay races were the day's event - amazingly these kids transferred a total of 48 eggs with only 3 broken ones! 
.... and after fun in the heat, everyone enjoyed bird's nest cookies!
The completed bird's nest project - could you hold it in your hand for 40 days?
