Poppies of Hope
Further to our recent newsletter posts, as part of St Aidan’s New Beginnings – Poppies of Hope Project over 200 poppies have now been delivered to our parish community far and wide and there has been a fantastic response so far from everyone who has received one.
If you haven’t got one and would like one then please let us know (with your address) and we will do our best to get one out to you as soon as possible.
Huge thanks for all those who have been busy knitting during lockdown and to the team who have been delivering them. Thank you all as always for your continued support over the weeks since we were last together.
‘Today amidst so much darkness we need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others’ (Pope Francis)
New Beginnings Banner
With the remaining poppies we have created a new banner which will hang in our church.
In the Celtic tradition this three pointed symbol of HOPE represents UNITY, with the endless looping and interweaving symbolising ETERNITY. The poppies, knitted by members of our parish community, symbolise REMEMBRANCE.
Taken together these ideas of hope, remembrance, unity, and eternity are at the heart of our life as a Christian community.
