Nativity Play

ParishPriest/ December 23, 2012/ Parish News/

Massgoers at the 10.45 on Sunday 23rd December enjoyed the spectacle of a wonderful nativity play performed by the young people of the parish.  Whilst the dramatis personae were handled by our youngest parishioners, those whose age had reached double figures had their role too, providing narration and music – including a brass trio to accompany the choir of angels and a vocal ensemble to perform a wonderful four-part setting of Ubi caritas.
