Over sixty people enjoyed a selection of carols, readings, poetry and music this evening in St Finnbarr’s, as we reflected on the story of the nativity and its meaning.
A splendid retiring collection raised over £300 for the homeless charity Emmaus, which houses, feeds and provides work for people who have been homeless whilst they get back on their feet again.
“By providing a stable home and meaningful work,
we help companions to regain their self-esteem
and find a positive way to move forward with their lives.“
At the interval, there were mince pies, shortbread and tea and coffee, and if I was looking for a picture for a caption competition, this one might serve that purpose:-)
A huge thank you to all those who organised, read, sang and played and another one to all those who came and gave so generously for people less fortunate than themselves. Now go tell it on the mountain, and wherever else you happen to be.
