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
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.

Veronica Drury took us on a most entertaining journey through her life from childhood to the present.
Through anecdotes, pictures and music Veronica led us through many events of her life. She looked at family and its importance. Many of her stories, though personal to her family, echo through our own families. These stories were delivered with a good seasoning of her dry wit and more than a touch of wisdom.
Veronica was most ably assisted by Kathy Bamber who worked with her to prepare the photos and was Chief of IT for the presentation. Sincere thanks to Dave who prepared the music for the presentation.
I have said it before but I will repeat it - you are amazing.
Your response to the appeal to help homeless women has been outstanding. So many donations have been received.
Sarah McGeehan joined us on Tuesday 28 November to say thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity. For those of you have not had the opportunity to donate Sarah will be accepting donations for the next couple of weeks.
Gifts may be left at the back of Bishop Eton Church after Mass.
