We are celebrating Christmas, the birth of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
It was great to see so many people come to celebrate the Lord's birth: standing room only at the vigil Mass, a quieter but very beautiful and prayerful celebration at Midnight, then a good congregation in the church and side chapel for morning Mass. May our parish, all our families and loved ones, and all people receive many blessings from our Lord in this sacred season.
St Stephen is the patron saint of altar servers, so a good number of the parish's servers came to Mass for his feast day (26th December). We have a great team of servers, who come very faithfully and serve at the altar with real reverence and love for Christ. Thanks to our servers for all they do.
