Attached are the notices for the 24 December 2017, the Fourth Sunday of Advent.

The main notice is about the Mass Times for Christmas and the Christmas Season.

There is also an appeal for more church cleaners, please contact the parish office for details.

And of course our Christmas Greetings:

God’s sign is simplicity. God’s sign is the Baby. God’s sign is that He makes himself small for us. 
This is how He reigns.  He does not come with power and outward splendor.
He comes as a Baby – defenseless and in need of our help.  He does not want to overwhelm us with His strength.
He takes away our fear of His greatness.  He asks for our love: so He makes himself a child.
Let us enjoy in Jesus as Pope Francis said:
“The flavour of the true spirit of Christmas: The beauty of being loved by God.”
May we look to the crib this Christmas and pray, asking the Blessed Mother:
“O Mary Ever Virgin, show us Jesus.”

Have a Blessed Christmas and New Year!
