7th December 2014
22 of our regular Sunday Special guests enjoyed a festive Christmas meal prepared and served by our team of loyal volunteers – as you can see in the photos, a great time was had by all!
We exercised our brain cells with our usual quiz, which was compiled by David Turner, and had a Christmas flavour – and, to help us with one of the quiz questions, we were entertained by Fr Derek who led us in an impromptu rendition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.
Our Sunday Special lunches are held in the Parish Centre on the first Sunday of each month and are for parishioners of St Mary and St Joseph church who would otherwise be on their own.
We are able to cater for up to 20 people and the sign up list is at the back of the church for two weeks beforehand. We do not charge for the meal but ask for a donation to cover the cost.
We have a small team of committed volunteers who assist with preparing and serving the meal.
It has been good to welcome some new volunteers during 2014 – however we would still like to recruit more. So, if you would like to help and can spare one, two or more Sundays during the year, we’d love to hear from you.
