What does Christmas mean to you? Frantic shopping building to a crescendo of family oriented consumption? Desperate dilemmas over what to do with warring relatives? Children nagging for presents you can't afford? Every year we hear complaints from people about the loss of the real meaning of Christmas, so here's a chance to find that again.

Slow down.


Spend half an hour with the Lord.

Every Sunday in Advent we are having Eucharistic Adoration in the church, from 1.30pm to 5.30pm. Can there possibly be a better way to prepare for Christmas than to spend time in the Real Presence of Christ Himself? So, go on, give yourself a break and take the time for God. Please sign up for one of the half hour slots in the list on the table at the back of the church. The Eucharistic Adoration cannot take place unless all the slots are filled, so please put your name down. Of course, you are welcome to simply pop in at any time, but I must emphasise that all the half hour time slots must be filled before the Eucharistic Adoration can take place.

Find again the real truth of Christmas.
