News and Events
Christmas bazaar: – A big thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Bazaar yesterday. Jacqui, Sally and all who managed various stalls did an excellent job. We wish to thank Tesco and our two corner shops: Best One and JE Pill and Sons for the donation of useful items for the Bazaar. Another big thank you to all who gave of their time to set up and clear stuff from the hall. An initial count shows that we have realized the sum of £2287.24. There are still a few items in the hall for those who had no chance to come to the Bazaar. Maggie’s nice cakes still available.
First Holy Communion: – First meeting for the Holy Communion parents Thursday 5th December at 7.45pm.
Advent 2019 Walk with ME, Advent & Christmas Calender is available in the porch. A great companion for the Advent season. Please take a copy for yourselves and your friends.
Advent has a twofold character, for it is a time for preparation for the Solemnities of Christmas, in which the first coming of the Son of God to humanity is remembered, and likewise a time when, by remembrance of this, minds and heart are led to look forward to Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time. For these two reasons, advent is a period of devout and Expectant delight.
