1st Sunday in Advent – Hope

This weekend Advent begins. It is a Church season that means “coming.”

Jesus is coming soon, bringing love, and teaching us how to get along, how to try again and again even when we make mistakes, and how to help one another. To get ready, we light the first Advent candle and worship here this day to prepare for Christmas.


Jesus, you are light even in the darkest places. Help us to trust in you when we are lost or lonely. Shine hope into our hearts we pray.




Bishop Declan’s Pastoral Letter to be read at all Masses on the weekend of 28th and 29th November.
