Before this year’s Ozanam Come Dancing starts, many elements have to be carefully planned so the show is a success. Costumes are no different.

A Year In The Life – 2017

What a wonderful year it has been in Ozanam House.

We had our after school children learn computer coding in February , an amazing night of Ozanam Come Dancing in Liberty Hall in March, a great intergenerational event at Easter between our Active Retirement Group and our Pre-schoolers, another incredible summer project, more amazing volunteers, continued learning as well as new classes in our Adult Education programmes, talented students supporting our Men’s Group and of course the honour of having President Michael D. Higgins coming to visit us in December. What a year it has been.

Thank you to everyone that has made this another great year in our centre. To all of our amazing and committed volunteers, our supportive and hardworking staff, our kind and generous donors and funders and most of all to our incredible members and service users –THANK YOU.

Wishing you all a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and every best wish for the New Year.

We look forward to more learning, growing, developing, sharing, and having fun in 2018!
