‘The Eucharist – User Manual’ is a series of three Advent meetings focused on Holy Mass; to understand it better and consequently make attending Mass more spiritually effective and fulfilling. The meetings will take place on three consecutive Thursday evenings at 19:30, starting on 2nd December. St Joseph’s Parish Hall is the intended venue but – depending on numbers – the meetings might take place in the church.

It is a place of great beauty, teeming with life of all kinds, a world full of wonderful resources which enable us not only to live but to enhance our way of life. In nature, God’s glory is revealed for all to see. St Francis of Assisi was prominent among the saints in giving praise to God for the wonder of creation.
