A CHRISTMAS GREETING:
With Fr Rector, Andrew Burns, and all the Redemptorists, I wish you a very happy Christmas and the joy and peace that God offers us in the gift of Jesus. The excitement and sense of wonder in the children has brought home to me this year that the message of Christmas is ever new. It is a message that the world in every age needs to hear again and again. Everyone who was able to join us last Monday for the carols and readings commented on the wonderful atmosphere that is generated as we reflect on everything that is going on in our community, represented by the baubles which we place on the tree. Someone said to me afterwards: “You must be very proud of what is going on.” Well, I am very proud of and thankful for you, because so many new initiatives are being taken and are clearly bearing fruit. May the Lord continue to bless all our efforts.
A very happy Christmas to you all… Tim Buckley, C.Ss.R
Parish Celebration of Carols 2017
This year the intention was to include the With You Alawys children more in the service. This was achieved wonderfully. Some of the children read reflections after the readings whilst others took part in a Nativity Tableau They shook their precussion instruments to 'It was on a starry night' and led us in a rendition of the calypso Carol. Thank you to all those who helped them prepare for the night and supported them on the evening.
Allerton Brass were as usual on great form, with pre and post service music, as well as the Little Drummer boy and Joy to the World during the Service.
Below is a slide show recording the evening.
The combined talents of the music groups from 10am and 6pm Masses (plus a couple of guests) provided us with beautiful music. Highlights included a rendition of Born on a New Day, and an instrumental version of Oh Holy Night
Fr. Tim thanked all those who took part and gave a Christmas blessing, which was followed by Allerton Brass playing some rousing music as the congregatipn headed to the Fisher-More Hall for mince pies and mulled wine
Message from Archbishop Malcolm in support of Catholic Education: The Government is about to make a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents new faith schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend their own schools. While the Prime Minister acknowledges that it is discriminatory, the Secretary of State needs convincing. If you wish to make your voice heard, please visit: //catholicnews.org.uk/education-cap or search for Catholic Education. Thank you.

Kingsway house building on Hatton garden, Liverpool is open for the homeless nights until February...it's warm and dry and they do hot food. They will take homeless people with dogs - many shelters do not. If you see anyone on the streets let them know this facility exits.
