Advent Friends at St Mary’s!
As part of our commitment to cutting down on paper use, and also to help us to connect with each other in new ways this Advent, we are asking you to do something a little different this year.
Instead of sending out Christmas cards to all your friends in the
parish, we’d like you to consider placing your name in our Advent Friends Postbox. At the start of Advent, each of us will thin pick out a name and write one card to that person, and also commit to praying for them throughout the festive season!
JPIC (Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation) next meeting Monday 25th November at 6pm in the Parish house.
All very welcome.
Sea-farers gifts: A huge thank you to all of you who have generously donated Christmas gifts for the sea-farers! We have a huge collection to take away to be packed over the next couple of weeks. Next weekend Pauline Robertson, Port Chaplain will be joining us to speak about her work at both Masses and we will have the opportunity to sign Christmas cards for sea-farers after Sunday Mass.
