The Lymington SantaDash was on today - 7 Dec 2014

The annual Oakhaven SantaDash took place today and is one of the world wide events to raise money at Christmas time for charity. The number of Santa's seen around the town before and after the event was a spectacle almost like a Santa flash mob
Well done to all taking part and contributing. Tribute to Oakhaven for organising the event.

The Friendship Club meets on the first Monday of every month in the comfortable parish rooms of Our Lady of Mercy & St Joseph Catholic Church, at the lower end of Lymington High St. We welcome anyone who would enjoy a relaxed, friendly, companiable afternoon. We enjoy a variety of activities including a quiz, poetry corner, raffle, home made afternoon tea and sometimes a short interesting talk. We have jewelry and cards for sale (made by members) and we regularly organise coach trips using the Community bus. These are very popular and we only ask for a donation towards fuel costs. There are books for sale or lend. We can organise transport to and from the Club if needed. We also run a Scrabble Group which meets on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month from 2-4 in the parish rooms - admission free. These groups are run by the St Vincent de Paul society who are a non-denominational organisation which exists to serve the whole community.

Baby Adam John Alexander Diffey son of Katie and Colin Grandson of Sheila and Terry Quinn of Pennington


children's liturgy 30 Nov 2014 - Adam&Eve

Today's bible story was that of Adam and Eve being tempted by the serpent devil to eat from the forbidden tree of life. We were told that God, on discovering that both Adam and Eve had eaten the forbidden fruit (which has now been symbolised by an apple) then banished the couple from Eden.

The children then coloured a picture of an apple and placed an apple on the Christmas tree to remind us that Adam and Eve defied God and were then removed from the garden of Eden, which was the original paradise.

Adams apple was it really an apple or quince

In addition the subject of feeling miserable was discussed and the importance of a smile to make others feel good
the mona Lisa was used as an example
one of the children said
she smiles through her eyes
and that is very true





More smiles
