We have invited Pupils in our schools as well as children in the Parish to decorate a Star for our Church Christmas Tree. We have asked the children to write the first name of the people in their family on one side of the star and a Christmas message on the other side. The Christmas message could be a short Prayer, a message to Jesus or a message about the true meaning of Christmas. When they have finished the children will leave it back in school or bring it to the Church. All the stars will be hung on the Christmas Trees in the Churches from Saturday 17th December for everyone to see. This is a simple way of welcoming children into the Church and allowing them to feel valued.
