Today marks the beginning of Advent and our preparation for the great feast of Christmas. In the leaflet you have been given you will see the various extra activities we have planned for Advent. Please take a copy away with you and think about how you and your family are going to prepare spiritually for Christmas.
Rorate Candlelit Masses at 7pm Every Monday
It is a “short Advent” this year – so there are only three Mondays in Advent. But on each Monday at 7pm in the Cathedral we will have our special candlelit Masses. These are beautiful occasions and a wonderful way to prepare for Christmas. Why not come, and bring your family and friends?
As you know, all Catholics are encouraged to make a good confession before the Feast of Christmas. In order to make this easy for you we will be hearing confessions ALL DAY EVERY SATURDAY during Advent. Please think about coming to confession and bringing your children and grandchildren.
Archbishop’s Youth Initiative – This Friday at 7pm
The Archbishop is launching a new youth initiative for the whole Archdiocese this Advent. On each of the Fridays of Advent, he will gather with the youth of the diocese here at the Cathedral at 7pm to offer catechesis, prayer and social time together.
God bless you and your families this week, Fr Patrick, Fr Nick, Deacon Peter and Sr Mary Cora
