|St Vincent de Paul|
The Christmas Lunch is hosted by a complete cross section of the parish which not only underlines that but shows that we whites are in the minority...... Holy Trinity reflects the Catholic Church in Africa, young, vibrant and committed.
The only problem with it is the readings. Isaiah, so far, a bit of Psalm and a bit of Gospel. Sometimes they are too bitty....verses 1 to 4 and 9 to 12...that sort of thing. It would have been much better to have included the readings in the book despite the size being doubled along with the price.
Ecumenical Advent Service
This is how it is billed:
Ecumenical Advent Celebration
A combined song-service, for the Advent of Christmas, by all churches (Catholic, Anglican,
Orthodox and Protestant) on the Jan Smuts Ave Axis, will be held at the Maranatha Church, 3
Sherborne Rd, Parktown (right next to St George's Anglican Church) on Gaudete Sunday (11th
of December) at 17h00.
All welcome: do come and share this most joyous celebration day on the Christmas calendar.
I'm not sure what the service is for....the most joyous celebration day on the Christmas calendar? I think not. Is it to show that all we jolly Christians can get together and share our commonality? It's a mystery to me.
