A big thank you to all who donated food parcels in aid of St. Vincent de Paul. Your generosity means many homes in the parish will have food for Christmas. Well done, the response was amazing.
Also a big thank you to Ann carroll and the Redeemer Girls School choir for the wonderful singing and music at our carol service last friday evening.
Although the numbers were few it was truly a magical eveniing of song and prayer in preparation for Christmas.
We look forward to seeing you all over the Christmas perio. A christmas message and Mass times for Christmas can be found by clicking the following the link http://www.holyredeemerparish.ie/homepage-mainmenu-25/59-chirstmas-message
Are you ready? Just take one moment.
It’s almost Christmas Eve. Are you tired? It’s been a long journey to the Bethlehem barn. Are
you ready for Christmas? Gifts wrapped, tree decorated, crib in place, food bought. But are
you ready? Are you filled with wonder at this God of ours who loves us, who forgives us,
who wants us, who gives his very own Son to be our saviour? Are you ready to sing Alleluia
with the heavenly choir? Take a moment – take a moment to savour and welcome what all
the preparations have been for: God is with us.
