Thank you for your cooperation with the Christmas and New Year schedule. Thanks to our sacristans, readers, Eucharistic ministers, choirs and altar societies. We pray for all on the many frontlines of Covid, that they may be safe and that we will all continue to act responsibly at this time.

 Pope Francis tweeted recently : ' Would that all of us in the Church were what we already are by virtue of Baptism: witnesses, missionaries of the Lord, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to the ends of the earth '.

 When the kings, princes and shepherds are home, the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the oppressed,
     to build the nation, to bring peace among the people, to make a little music in the heart     
. . . . to radiate the light of Christ in all we do and say.
