BOOK OF CONDOLENCE
A Book Of Condolence has been opened at St John’s Church to facilitate all who wish to sympathise with the People and the Nation of South Africa on the loss of their National Icon and Liberator, Mr Nelson Mandela. You are invited to sign it any time during the week – up to next Sunday. We encourage you to also enter the church say a prayer, and, perhaps, light a shrine-candle in his memory.
Family & Parish Reconciliation Service
As part of our preparation for Christmas, we’ll have a Family & Parish Reconciliation Service in St John’s this Thursday evening at 7.30 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend. In particular, we ask parents and school-going children to avail of this opportunity (as they did last year) as it replaces ‘School Confessions’ this Christmas, thereby making this a more family, parish and community occasion.
