This year our annual Christmas gathering moved out of the confines of head office and into the much more spacious surroundings at Little Sisters where staff and the people we care for and support could enjoy some festive cheer. The afternoon started with Mgr Lucy and an advent service in the Chapel. This was followed by festive refreshments and singing. The children from St Patricks Torre Road, Leeds enchanted us all and sang beautifully. Stephen Johnson and his guitar then led the way with some lively Carol singing.
As the afternoon drew to a close some of the children supported through the School & Family Social Work Service met Bishop Marcus at his house. The Bishop chatted to the children about Christmas and kindly had some photographs with them as a memento. The children (and staff) skipped away from Bishops House, this visit had definitely been a real highlight and one they will remember for a long time.
