CHRISTMAS

Christmas Clean

Our Church always looks well cared for and this is down to the hard work of a few people. Cleaning is one of those things that people only really notice when it is left undone! To get us spruced up for Christmas there will be a working party on Saturday 19th December beginning at 9-30am. The Mass is at 9-00am so why not come along and worship before you help clean? There will also be coffee and mince pies during the morning. Please help if you can. Men, women, children are all welcome and there is always plenty to do so why not join us?

Christmas Decorations in Church

St James will be decorated for Christmas after Mass on Sunday 20th December. Everyone welcome to join the team to decorate the church or arrange flowers. Please see Susan Noble for exact times and arrangements.

Christingles will be prepared on Thursday 24th December at 9-30am. Help will be needed and everyone will be welcome so please come along. Morning Mass is on Christmas Eve, at 9-00am, so we can all start the day with prayer.

Many people like to contribute towards the cost of Christmas Flowers; a collection jar will be available at the back of St James for any donations people might like to make.
