Remember they need to be decorated back and front and will be hung in the churches for our Christmas Masses. Stars to Fr Greg lunch time on the 23rd!


Children wishing to be part of our Nativity at the 6.00pm Mass Christmas Eve can submit their names to Fr Greg. Practices will be on Saturday the 15th at 10.00am and Sunday 23rd at 5.00pm both in St James. You don't need to be at both practices but it would be helpful for those wanting to be Mary or Joseph to be present!
