IN MEMORY OF LOVED ONES: Our 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday 17th December will be celebrated in memory of family members, from within and outside of our parish, who have died during the year. As a Christian community we have entrusted our loved ones to God, but they will be very much in our thoughts and hearts this Christmas. The Pastoral Council would like to put together a pictorial tribute in memory of loved ones who passed during the year. If you wish to have someone remembered at this mass, and over Christmas, please drop his or her photo into the sacristy or parish office letter box a.s.a.p.(by 8th December) and kindly note the name and date of death on the back. It will be helpful also if you include your own name and contact number for return of photos.

SHINE A LIGHT IN MEMORY OF A LOVED ONE: The Remembrance Lighting being installed in the church grounds for Christmas is in memory of loved ones who have passed away over the years. Bulbs are available from the parish office, supermarkets and chemist. May we be supported throughout the Christmas Season by the blessings that our loved ones wished upon us in life.
