Monthly Inspiration

Monthly Inspirational – December 2020

Christ the King 2020 crowned in a Corona Year. The Feast of Christ the King signals the end of the current  liturgical year and the following Sunday which is  the First Sunday of Advent,  starts a new liturgical  year.

At the end of a  liturgical year,  we normally look back at all the activities and events that took place,   and...
