HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ALL AT ST MARY’S
After all the busy-ness of Christmas and New Year we look forward to settling into a more normal routine during January. All our regular activities and events are back up and running and we have a couple of new ventures starting as well.
January 4th / 5th was clean-up weekend. Our Cleaning Crew started the post-Christmas clean up on Saturday and all the wreaths have now been taken down. Thank you to everyone who contributed to The Wreath Festival, the church looked fabulous throughout December. If you have not yet collected your wreath, please do so as soon as possible. All uncollected wreaths will be disposed of at the end of the month as we have nowhere to store them.
*NEW* Tuesday evening 7 January was the first session of ‘WHY ON EARTH?’ – a fresh way to talk about life’s questions and faith. Contact Rev. Jes for more information.
