Christmas Day 2015                  

Happy Christmas:On behalf of the community at The Graan we wish each and every one of you a very Happy and Blessed Christmas. We would like to thank you for your marvellous support for everything we undertook at The Graan during the past year. It has been a real pleasure and privilege to be of service to you. Thank you for the most encouraging words you continue to give to all of us.

Christmas Collection:Will be a special collection for the Community’s work here at The Graan.

Christmas Cards and Gifts: The Community has received Christmas cards and gifts from so many people that it is impossible for us to write individually to each of you. Please accept our sincere thanks through the bulletin for all your kindness and generosity.

Remembering the Dead at Christmas: We have placed all the names of your deceased relatives beside the Christmas Family Tree (The Jesse Tree). They will be remembered at all our Christmas Masses today and over the Christmas period. We have also enrolled each and every one of your loved ones on our Passionist Mass Guild to be prayed for at daily Mass throughout the year.
