We celebrate St Lucia -the Patron Saint of Light-on the date nearest to her Feast Day. She is the young Scandi girl who served the poor of her district secretly, under cover of darkness, wearing a candle crown to light her way. A young girl from our congregation takes the part of the Saint in a re-enactment of her life, but her crown is made of glow-sticks, to satisfy our parish Health and Safety requirements, This is a very popular service with the children from our local schools, and their families, and all are welcome to attend.
