Fr Jimmy wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year and thanks you all for your kind support
Please invite your family and friends, and any lapsed Catholics you might know, to come with you to the celebrations over the Advent and Christmas seasons. Your invitation could be the encouragement they need to come to the Sacraments.
You are very welcome at St Michael’s Church
Parish social event for our senior parishioners in the Church Hall between 12 noon and 2 pm on Thursday 13th December.
There’ll be lovely warming soup and delicious sandwiches, followed by apple crumble and custard, with tea or coffee; a local singing group will come along to entertain us with some jolly seasonal songs.
Arrangements have been made to provide free transport in a minibus.
Please speak to Richard Roche-Saunders or Janet Gwynn to let us know if you’d like to come along; there’s also a sign-up list at the back of the church, or give Richard a ring on 623169 or Janet on 07773 697771. We’d like to have some idea of numbers by Tuesday 11th December please.
