Season of Advent

This Sunday starts the great season of Advent, where the church prepares to celebrate Christ’s Nativity, when we recall Christ’s first coming. As we remember so also, we look forward in faith to his Second Coming at the end of time. Advent is a period of joyful hope.

Please do all you can to create a space in your lives at this time, so that when Christmas comes upon us, we can enter fully into the mystery of the incarnation.

Bishop Brian’s Advent Talk

Bishop Brian will be giving an Advent Talk on Tuesday the 12th of December at 7pm in St. Mary’s. Please come along and support this event.

St. Mary’s, Decorating the Church for Christmas

It is proposed that we decorate St. Mary’s for Christmas on Wednesday the 13th of December at 6.30pm in the evening. To enable as many people as possible to come along and help.

Fr. Danny Convery Confessions

We are blessed to have Fr. Danny to hear confessions on Thursday the 14th of December at 6.30pm in St. Mary’s. This is a great chance to go to the sacrament before the celebration of Christmas.

Blessing of the Crib

On Sunday the 17th of December at 11.15am mass in St. Mary’s we will bless the crib. The more families and children that come along, make a huge difference.
