Dear families, we are currently unable to open Tots and Toys in Norton St Philip Church for our babes and toddlers. But if you are new to the parish or newly at home with a young family, I would still like to say hello and you can contact me by phone or email for any help or support in the meantime.
The next one is scheduled for Sunday 13 December at 9.30 am – 10.00 am via Zoom and the theme will be the Christmas Story. Please register with Caroline (email@example.com or tel: 834258) so that you receive your Zoom invitation.
We are continuing our tradition of having two Posada boxes which go on their travels from 1-24 December around Norton St Philip and Rode finally arriving at the family crib services at St Philip and St James NSP and at St Lawrence Rode. They are a central feature of the crib services. Due to Covid-19 restrictions the crib services will be online this year but two new Posada boxes (which are Covid-19 safe as all the items are wooden and therefore washable) will be ready for families to look after for one day starting 1 December.
Families sign up to look after the Posada box for one day and night. In the Posada boxes are the Holy Family, animals and the Nativity story in a wipeable folder and a Posada prayer. In the lid of the box are the details of which family has the box on which night together with their address and mobile number (this is with their permission) and they take responsibility to pass the box to the next family. The families are asked to put the Holy Family in a window of their house for others to see.
Would your family like to be part of this lovely Christmas tradition? If so, please contact me for more details.
