Thought for the day: Even in its resolutely secular form, the Christmas celebration has positive sides to it. People do try very hard to get together with close family and friends. It might help to reflect in advance on this seasonal intensity of encounter. What do I hope for? What do I bring? How can I/we be so that we are not simply in the same physical space but truly meet each other and are the better for it? There should be some leap of joy, so that at the end of the festivities, we are glad we made the effort. Prayer: God of all loving, bless all our encounters this Christmas. Help us to be both kind and joyful, so that all whom we meet will be the better for it. Inspire us to know when a word of witness will lift the celebration and enable family and friends to get to the heart of it all.

This year we will have an additional Mass at 6.15pm on Thursday evening, December 23rd. The celebration will have a Christmas theme. Some might consider attending this Mass as there will likely be less people in attendance.

Parish Masses: You are welcome to attend either the weekday Mass or weekend Mass as the Sunday obligation is still lifted. We give thanks to God that we can physically gather as a faith community once again. Protective measures include:
(i) You are asked to wear a face mask.
(ii) Come in good time.
(iii) We ask that you observe social distancing.
(iv) Communion can only be received in the hand at this time.
(v) hand sanitisation is advised.
(vii) You can place your offering for the offertory collection in the building fund boxes at the back of the churches as the passing of baskets is not permitted.
Your co-operation is very much appreciated.

Christmas Crib Appeal 2021. Míle buíochas to all who have put up the Cribs in our three Parish Churches. This year your Crib donations will go to the Cara Project in Kenya. Your support for this very worthy cause is greatly appreciated.

May God bless each of us, this Christmas may all darkness in our lives be removed by the light of Christ. May our hearts be filled with the Joy of Christ’s birth. Nollag Shona.
