FR DAVID ON THE CHRISTMAS SEASON:
Today is the Feast of the Lord's Baptism which marks the formal end of the Christmas season. Liturgically, however, the Christmas mystery reaches forward towards the Feast of Candlemas on 2 February. I know that some of you keep your cribs out till then. This is an opportunity for the priests once again to send you all Christmas blessings and thanks for your gifts and cards. Tomorrow we begin the season of Ordinary Time until the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, 6 March.

THIS WEEK IS THE OCTAVE OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY:
As the name suggests, this is a time of prayer when we unite our own intentions with those of the Lord Jesus who, before his death and resurrection, prayed for the unity of his followers. Children from our primary school (Year 1 and Year 4) will join us at 10 am Mass this Thursday morning to lead us in a special Mass for unity and reconciliation. The Mass will be followed by Benediction.

CRIB OFFERINGS:
The Catholic Children’s Society supports disadvantaged children and families across London, Hertfordshire and the South East, working with individuals of all faiths and none; our sole aim is to help those in greatest need.  Thank you for your donations to the Crib this Christmas.
