Thank you for making such a success of the Christmas Fayre. I saw the organisers beavering intensely for several weeks in preparation. Your gifts were huge – particularly those in liquid form. The parish coffers swelled considerably – just how much is not yet clear. But principally it was a celebration of our parish family spirit. That is more important today than ever before. In today’s fragmented and tortured world we need to spell out in action the precious treasure God has given us in our parish. Thank you for all you have given: of gifts, your energy and principally of yourselves.
