Day of Retreat – Tuesday 8 December at the Parish of the Immaculate Conception Stratherrick. 10.00 to 15.15. This retreat is limited to twelve people to remain within the safe practices of COVID-19 protocols. For further details, see poster in the porch.
Outside Christmas Crib? Fr John would like a ‘homemade’ outside crib to supplement the traditional nativity one inside the church and to help our children to focus on the true meaning of Christmas. If anyone or any group or any children would like to explore the idea, please speak to him.
Unfortunately as hand sanitisers are flammable, we are not allowed to use candles! This includes the votive candle stands at the two statues within the church. Fr. John asks that everyone, including every child, bring a decorated torch to add colour and fun to the celebration.
Masses over the Christmas period will be as follows:
Christmas Eve: Outside Mass at 4pm for families
Inside Mass at 8 pm
Christmas Day: Outside Mass at 10.30am
Inside Mass at 12.00
Fr John is also looking for an authentic baby doll for the outside crib. Also some outside coloured lights. Please speak to Fr. John If you can help.
