ADVENT – A TIME OF WAITING AND PREPARATION

As the earth turns away from the sun and enters the season of darkness, a darkness which is necessary for the bulbs and seeds to ready themselves for the burst of growth in Spring, so do we enter the time of waiting that is Advent.  We  pray that we may use this time as wisely as the earth does, preparing our hearts and    spirits for the celebration of the wonder of Emmanuel – Christ with us.

Advent Wreath

As we gaze on the Advent Wreath the evergreen is a sign of hope and the circle a sign of God’s never ending love for us. May the light that shines forth from the wreath brighten our way as we journey towards Christmas. 

WEEK ONE – THE CANDLE OF HOPE – PURPLE

God of Hope,

We thank you for the hope that is in our hearts today as we look towards Christ’s birth. It is  hope that has sustained us during the challenging times of this past year. 

We pray that hope may remain strong within each of us and among our families and community  in the coming winter season. Amen

WEEK TWO – THE CANDLE OF PEACE – PURPLE

God of Peace,

May your Holy Spirit of peace come upon each of us  – in a new way.  So that amid the busyness and chaos of our lives nothing may unduly trouble or disturb us.  

May our hearts remain hopeful and our minds tranquil because they are centred in You.  Amen.

Donations – World Mission Sunday

As Fr. Louis and Pádraigín reminded us in today’s Mass, this Sunday is the “World Mission Sunday“, which is a direct reminder of the multiple missions going on around the World, and a direct appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the life-giving work of missionaries can continue.

Please find in the attachment below important information on how you can support WMI:
