Christmas Vigil
The Christmas Vigil was held in St Brendan’s Church Clondra and what a lovely mass and atmosphere created by Fr Patsy, the choir, those who help out in the church and the sacristan. The lovely punch (non alcoholic) on arrival, the candle lit church, community participation in mass and sweets at the end were a lovely way to lead into the festive season. The choir and musicians were in top form and added to the wonderful atmosphere. Well done to all.
