Every Friday during Advent, from 7–8 pm, there is an additional and important opportunity to spend time encountering the Lord’s Eucharistic Presence in adoration.
For those adults interested in celebrating the sacraments of baptism and confirmation, or being received into the Church, our initial meeting for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is on Saturday 15 December after 12:30pm Mass. We hope to see you there! If you wish to find out more, come along (no obligation).
Saturday 8 December is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, and part of our Advent Retreat Weekend. There will be a Solemn Mass and Procession at 12:30pm to be followed by a light buffet, and the preacher will be Fr Fergus Ryan OP, from our Community at San Clemente in Rome. Please do avail of this opportunity. After the lunch, Fr Fergus will give a reflection, and there will be Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament until 4pm.
Advent recollection is an opportunity to experience God’s mercy in this holy season. Please make a special opportunity to attend the Mass and recollection, and avail of the opportunity for Confession. The Fourth Sunday of Advent will also be a special opportunity to celebrate this sacrament.
