As we move on from the Christmas season thanks to all who prepared, cleaned and decorated the church, erected the crib and the Christmas tree; all who prepared for and took part in the Christmas liturgy and created a suitable atmosphere for the celebration of the birth of Christ.
Thanks also to all who contributed to our Envelope Collection throughout the year. This Envelope Collection in Emly parish allows parishioners to contribute to the parish at a time and in a way that is suitable for them. Envelopes are always available in the church.
