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.

Nazareth to Green Lane


VeronicaKathyVeronica 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.
