Last but not least, I thank my fellow clerics Frs Ian Verrier, Henry Whisenant and Andrew Jolly, and Deacon Roger Gilbride for their generous pastoral zeal along the past year, not to forget our dear absent clergy Frs Konrad Loewenstein and Alex Stewart. On their behalf and mine, I thank you for your many expressions of affection and consideration through Christmas cards and Christmas gifts. Please be assured that you were remembered and your intentions in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Midnight Mass, including all of you praying with us from a distance via LiveMass.

Extra liturgical Christmas celebrations: the Saturday before Christmas, a group of our parishioners walked into the town centre to sing Christmas carols and handed out blessed Miraculous Medals to the passersby. On Monday 30th December, there was standing room only at the performance of ‘The Finding of the King’, a nativity play in the top parish room. Congratulations to the families and Fr Whisenant for the hard work and the impressive success.
