Senior Parishioners of Blessed Trinity Church, Wickersley, Rotherham enjoy their Christmas Lunch
Children from St Patrick’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, Sheffield Lane Top, celebrated Christmas by singing carols outside the local shops. It was really cold but the children and parents really enjoyed it, as well as the customers.
Below, children take part in the Christingle Service held in St Patrick’s Church next door to the school.
‘The Best Party in Town’ was how the leader of Sheffield City Council, Julie Dore described the Christmas Party at St Wilfrid’s Centre for the homeless and vulnerable. Julie went on to say that of all the events that she has to attend throughout the year, with various dignitaries, this was the one that she most enjoyed.
The annual Christmas Dinner for clients was also attended by Bishop Ralph, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, Councillor Peter Rippon and his wife Sue, Nigel Clough, players and vice presidents from Sheffield United Football Club, to name but a few.
The Christmas Dinner and all the trimmings were provided by Claremont Hospital and the entertainment performed by the staff team at St Wilf’s.
Santa Claus was also on hand to give out a present to each of the clients. The event concluded with a rendition of ‘You will never walk alone’; this once again proved that there really is ‘Only One St Wilfrid’s Centre’.
