It's was that joyful time again were the
children of the Parish took part in the Spirit of Christmas Nativity Event. There was a delay in getting things brought in and started. The children took it in their stride and were quickly off the mark getting everything on the Christmas tree and Nativity Crib. They were all multitasking going between the tree and Nativity while scoffing the amazing Christmas cookies made by Helen Loudon. Mince pies, short bread and goodie bags supplied by Fiona Kilpatrick, Thank you ladies the children really loved them. Thank you to everyone who orgainised and helped make it happen. Special thanks to Pat and Pete Mackie for buying our new Nativity crib and Elizabeth and Gordon Stewart for the tree. Thank you everyone! God bless!
We will be putting up Our Nativity on Sunday 11th of
December 2022 after 11:30am Mass at Our Lady and St John the Baptist. Very exciting as the children had so much fun last year doing it! All ages are welcome to join us to make it a family event. Teas, coffees, juice and mince pies will be served.
Thanks to Gordon and Elizabeth in advance for providing us with the Christmas tree again this year! Thank you to Pat Mackie for donating our new Crib for this year. We feel so blessed and thankful!
