Happy Boxing Day!
Hope you had a lovely Christmas Day.
A very different Christmas for many of us, it has been this year.
Together, in this strangest of years, whether you attended Christmas Mass online or in church, we joyfully united in the celebration of the birth of Jesus, our Infant King, who brings us peace, comfort and consolation.
In these difficult times, our church could not be open and our Masses being celebrated without the help of all our volunteers.
Many people are involved in so many ways, thankfully, helping and volunteering, looking after all the Masses, managing numbers of attendees, and ensuring at all times that our church, halls and grounds are safe and secure areas for all.
To all who help and volunteer in all areas of the life and mission of our parish of St Andrew, I thank you all sincerely.
Great seeing the photos of your cribs being posted in. Keep them coming. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, this year, we'll be keeping the crib up for 40 days through to Candlemas on 2nd February.
Why not keep yours up in your home until then? It's such a terrific visual aid and the 40 days allows us to adore the new-born Christ for longer.
Wishing your Boxing Day is full of plenty R & R.
