Congratulations to the St. Finn Barr Catholic School Class of 2023!

We have made many wonderful memories together at SFB, and they will be memories you cherish as you move into high school and the years beyond that. But we will also hold on to those memories because, you see, once you're a Shamrock, you will ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ด be a Shamrock! We could not be more proud of how you have carried yourself and flourished during this time and we look forward to hearing all about your many accomplishments as you continue to pursue your education as critical thinkers, lifelong learners, and compassionate children of God.

Wishing you blessings on your next step!
