Our UCM Christmas Party held on Wednesday 2nd December via Zoom was a great success. We had 14 participants, with guest Sue O’Brien (Past President) visiting us. Our President Anne Rodrigues, welcomed us all into the meeting and introduced some fun activities:- A rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas sung by each participant – quite hilarious, a Play, a Poem, Christmas Carols, Guess the Baby photo, some footage of videos and photos of past UCM Christmas parties, Deacon Phil opened with a prayer and Father Roy concluded our meeting with a prayer. A video of Fiona’s VIP Singers (Visually Impaired Person) she helps with, singing their version of “Little Drummer Boy” It is so inspiring – take a look on youtube. https://youtu.be/hzpYwmLAMZs
Also a video clip of Alex in our church choir singing “O Holy Night” recently – awesome! We will try and put that on the church website if we can.
Currently we are raising funds for CRISIS at Christmas, we have been donating towards some handicrafts (masks, Christmas cushions, baubles, general items and wallflowers) or just making a donation on line; so far we have raised £600. If you look on the CRISIS website, you will find details of how to donate there. They are in need so much for help especially this current year.
