Thank You
A word of thanks to all decorated the Church for the Christmas celebrations, all your work enhanced the atmosphere making the Church inviting and prayerful. The Christmas tree and garland over the door, the flowers and crib, the music and linens and the general appearance of the Church, thanks to our volunteer cleaners, made for a great sense of welcome and blessing. My thanks to the choir, folk group, and family Mass group for their part in the Christmas liturgies, as always your presence and music bless our parish. I would like to take this opportunity again! To wish you every blessing for the New Year ahead on behalf of Myself and Canon Fitzgibbon and all the Parish Staff.
Fr. Hampson
