Christmas 2023 Photopost (Part 2)

We continue with photos of your Christmas liturgies; these are posted mostly in the order received, and it just worked out that a lot of particularly nice images show up in this set. In the meantime, get your cameras ready for celebrations of Epiphany this weekend - we will post a reminder tomorrow, along with the last images from Christmas. As always, thanks to all those who contributed; Christus natus est nobis: venite; adoremus!
