News from the team
On 9th December 2017 the Bereavement Group held a service where they created a Jesse tree. The tree was made by Alan Dutt to be used during our Bereavement afternoon of Sharing and Reflection. The idea was for people to write a thought/prayer on the provided shaped pieces of paper to hang them on the tree. After the service the tree was put on the Altar of Remembrance in church for the use of parishioners.
On 13th February the Bereavement Group held a service for those who have been bereaved and 26 people attended. Part of the service was to create a mandala reflecting something about the person who had died. Below are examples of what was created.
