Welcoming The Christmas Season Around The Diocese

In our diverse and lively diocese we celebrate the coming of Christmas in many locations and styles. Pictured above is the choir of St Andrew’s Church, Pau, in Southern France. Liz Rushton reports that Following an invitation from the local Mairie, the Choir and church members gave a festive feel to a "Marché de Noël" in the centre of Pau, singing Christmas Carols at a number of locations in the square. It was much appreciated by the locals many of whom followed them as they moved around.

And another nativity play in the mountains of Monaco was well received
