Christmas came early on Christmas Eve  
Christingle Children on Christmas Eve

The annual Children's Christingle service on Christmas Eve has become an important part in the Christmas celebrations for many of our families. The smiles on this group of our Sunday Club children speaks volumes.

 
On Christmas Eve morning, a cheerful team of Christingle volunteers worked in the Chaplain's kitchen to prepare the candied oranges that are blessed and distributed to the children at the Christmas Eve Christingle service.

 
Christmas arrived in Monte-Carlo a bit after 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve when our children carried Baby Jesus to the Crèche and placed him in the manger ...

The bright Light of Christmas brought out to the streets of Monaco 
Then it was time to celebrate, candied oranges lit, and the light of the new born babe of Bethlehem carried out into the world: Tidings of Great Joy!

Vanessa & Ian renew their vows ...     

The new year 2017 got off to a great start at St Pauls when, after 20 years of marriage, Vanessa and Ian Ilsey renewed their wedding vows at the New Year's Day Family Communion. Congratulations to Ian and Vanessa who are pictured here with their children Charlotte and Alex.

Les Choralines 06 in Concert at Saint Paul's  
 
The Monaco Priory of the Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem hosts a special concert this Saturday, 14 January, at Saint Paul's Church featuring the women's choral ensemble: Les Choraline 06. The concert begins at 17:30 and donations will go to support the charitable work of the Order. A reception follows with "galettes des rois" and drinks. 
 
Save those stamps!
Once again this year, Mrs Sheila Stallard asks that you save the stamps on envelopes you received over the holiday period and throughout the year. Stamps can be deposited in a tin marked for this purpose at the back of the church. These are then taken to Church House in Westminster where they are sold to raise funds for the mission of the Diocese.
