News and Events at St Mary Magdalen
Save the date: join us for our Christmas Fair
on Sunday 15 December from 10.30am to 2pm.
Following on from the successful School Fair, you are warmly invited to the winter delights of the St Mary Magdalen Church Christmas Fair on Sunday 15 December, straight after our 9.30am Mass through to 2pm. We will have wonderful food and drink available, so you could stay immediately after the 11am Mass if you like, or join us for the whole period and gain both 'Food from Heaven' and 'Heavenly Food'. We have a barbecue as well as home produce on sale, and plenty for all the family including the chance to win fabulous prizes on our 'Wheel of Fortune' or our prize raffle, to go bargain-present hunting through our Bric-a-Brac and toys, games or book stalls or simply the child-like joy of having your face painted or finding the real Christmas tree for your home on your hunt through a forest of real fir trees to the real Father Christmas in 'Santa's Grotto'! So come for fun, come for friendship, come for food and come for a bargain, as you help to raise funds for a project to reach out to isolated frail and elderly members of our local community, from all walks of life and religion, to bring together carers and the ones they care for to an afternoon of family and friendship away from home to "Tea and Symphony": an afternoon of tea/coffee/cakes and chat over music and dance, to provide a listening ear and maybe even a Tango or two! Please help by joining us on the day and/or by donating goods for sale or for our raffle prizes or simply by making a donation to our charity project - anything you can give will go a long way to helping others: THANK YOU.
