I wish you all a very happy Christmas. Welcome home to any visitors, and those for whom this  Christmas is different are particularly in our thoughts and prayers. Thankyou for your suppport of the parish and myself personally at this time.
Thanks to all who contributed to the St Vincent de Paul collection, and for all your charitable donations, helping to make the Christmas message real for so many.

Lord, I know you always give us the chance to start again with you.
You are always ready to renew your friendship with each of us.
Your birth was a sign of new hope, a new beginning, a fresh start.
Let the splendour of your birth, let the wonder of your presence,
the miracle of your being-with-us, light up our minds and hearts,
to bring us the blessings of your love and peace this Christmas.

Being light in the darkness is what the candles in our windows symbolize. They are candles of hope in the midst of despair, 
candles of peace for places of discord, candles of joy for those in sadness, candles of courage for those in fear, candles of love and care for all.       Intercom
