Christmas Cards

This Christmas, we are once again selling Christmas Cards designed by the late Elise Johnston exclusively for the Chaplaincy. The cards are professionally printed and delivered with envelopes, there is no verse inside, so you will be able to personalise each card for its recipient. Cards cost 1.00€ each and all profit goes to church funds, so this is a really worthwhile cause.

Please look at these samples and buy your cards from your local churchwarden, who has a stock available, that way you will avoid postage and be sure to have your cards in good time.

Some of the cards are in short supply, so don't delay; order now and you won't be disappointed!
