Circles of Life talks:
Continuing on Tuesday there will be another talk exploring a different “circle of life” either preparing us for the year ahead, for Christmas or for eternity! Each evening will either be presented by Holly, John Colby, Fr Peter or Deacon Dom. They hope to be informative, fun and prayerful:
On Tuesday 22nd November at 7:30pm it will be an opportunity to use your craft skills to make an advent wreath and learn its significance and symbolism.
Finally, on Tuesday 6th December at 7:30pm, over some mulled wine and the odd mince pie there will be a presentation on the Advent “O” Antiphons. All are very welcome – let us learn, share and pray together.
70th/125th Anniversary of St Mary’s:
Earlier this year we celebrated 70 years since the foundation stone of the present church had been blessed…………next year we celebrate 70 years since the church was opened and 125 years since the parish of St Mary’s was established. Double celebrations! In the next couple of weeks, you will hear about some fun events to help commemorate this marvellous year. It could be a Zumba, a quiz, a pilgrimage, a calendar!
It will be a fun and holy year nonetheless. Watch this 70th/125th space for more details
