When we return in January 2016, we will be focussing on Christmas. In particular, we will look at the Christmas story from the perspective of the shepherds. Their response invites an exploration of the language they used and also consideration of the nature of the ministry of Jesus, which was to care for and live among the poor and marginalised.
The symbolism of the nativity scene is examined through the story of the first crib, an idea inspired by St Francis. If you would like to find out more about this, please use the link below.
