TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Connecting to the Christmas Story

December 19, 2017 Comments Teresa Brierley

I write this last message for the year on Gaudete Sunday – the Sunday of joy, rejoicing and eager expectation. This day will be completed by going to Lochinvar and being part of their traditional Carols in the Cloister. What a joyous way to continue preparing for the celebration of Christmas.
