Advent and Christmas 2016

 

Advent

 

Advent is a season of expectation (waiting and preparing for the celebration of the birth of Jesus and also for his return in glory).  It is a period to convert our hearts and also to live in hope (as we wait for that which has not yet arrived). May the Holy Family watch over you and your family this whole year through.      Would you invite someone who has been away for a while to come to church with you?
