A thought from CAFOD

 

COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS:

During this last week before Christmas, we still have many preparatory celebrations in the schools and in the parishes. They are designed to help us focus on the wonder of the gift God has given us and thereby prepare for the great day itself.

Each year Christmas provides us with a unique opportunity to reach out to the wider community. For some, it is the one time in the year when they choose to come to church. I hope the welcome they receive may prompt them to think about how rewarding it would be to be part of our communities of faith throughout the year.

realise that some of the Masses draw unusually large congregations and we do need to be careful regarding the whole question of health and safety. For those Masses we will ensure that votive candles are not available; we will put some extra chairs out and have a couple of standing areas, but at the same time try to ensure that the church does not become so overcrowded that evacuation in the case of an emergency was impossible.

It will be wise to arrive early and be as accommodating as possible. We will be able to bring some children onto the sanctuary as usual, but obviously, if the church is packed then some people may be disappointed. Hopefully, anyone in that situation will understand.

The Funeral of Deborah Sharpe RIP

will take place on Wednesday 19 December at 1.30pm.
