Christmas Decorations – Thank you!
5 January 2018

Through the Nativity of Our Lord, we welcomed into the world, Jesus, the light of all nations, the light of all generations, the light that overcomes all darkness.

We were able to celebrate our Christmas masses in a wonderfully  decorated and brilliantly illuminated church.

A big ‘Thank you’ to the volunteers who gave up their time and worked so hard to put up and arrange the beautiful decorations.
