Advent and Christmas 2017

ADVENT has begun and the time of preparation for Christmas is here. The vestments and hangings change to purple; the Advent wreath is lighted for worship. Books of meditations for grownups are in the pews for you to take home; books of activities for families with children are sent home from Church School. Please join the parish family for Advent activities:
