Christmas 2016 Photopost - Part 2

We continue with your photos of Christmas liturgies; this special international edition includes photos from Lithuania, France, Chile and Singapore. We have received enough submissions to make a third, so if you sent photos in and don’t them here, they will be included in the next one. (They are posted in the order received.) We will also be doing photoposts for Epiphany; a reminder will be put up next week. As always, our thanks to all those who sent these in, and best wishes to all our readers for a Happy New Year!
