Christmas is traditionally the season of joy and
goodwill but, for many, it is also a painful time. It
may be the first Christmas without someone you love;
it may be a time when you feel alone or caught up in a

take time and space to acknowledge our sadness, as

The Prayer Service will take place in St. Thomas’
