Wishing each one of you the peace and joy of Christ this Christmas.
May 2015 bring you many graces and blessings.
I hope that you all have time to stop and rest awhile during this wonderful Christmas season.
Fifteen school weeks have passed since those bright September days at the start of the academic year. Our minds now turn to Christmas and all the festivities associated with that time. Walking around the town at the weekend you realise just how busy everyone is trying to complete the present shopping, the tree decorating and the food buying. With this time being so hectic, it is often easy to forget what Christmas is all about – the birth of Jesus.
It is our time to celebrate this wonderful event with our family and friends. We have to remember that Christmas is not all about the number of presents we receive or the cost of the party. It’s about the generous giving without expecting something in return. It’s about the time we can spend with our family. It’s about making memories that will last our lifetime. I was recently shown a posting on Facebook showing a group of African orphans opening up their Shoebox appeal presents. The joy was unbridled and wonderful to see. One present containing gifts that cost very little but clearly meant so much.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2015.
God grant you the light of Christmas,
which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas,
which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas,
which is justice;
the belief in Christmas,
which is truth;
the all of Christmas,
which is Christ.

Have an enjoyable festive break
