Pastoral Notes 2nd December, 2018

A New Church Year ………………

Advent sees the beginning of a new Church Year, with some holly decoration from our Polish community – a novelty which retains our local sober tradition in contrast to the sometimes hectic nature of the world around us. Later we will have the outdoor Crib as we approach Christmas.

A CHANGE also comes for most of our Indian (specifically Syro-Malabar) community as they will be celebrating their own Rite of Mass from 9th December, under the direction of their own bishop, at St John Ogilvie Church, Corby, every Sunday. They can then offer their own weekly catechism for the children there also. They will still be with us on weekdays and we wish them well in this further move.
