Advent is a time of renewal and silent preparation to the Christmas festivities and the coming of Christ at the end of time.
There will be an Advent Rorate Mass (in candle light) every Friday in Advent (8th, 15th and 22nd December) at 8.00pm.
Advent encourages us to reflect on the contrast between our daily routine and the unexpected coming of the Lord. The Gospel, the Pope said, is not trying to frighten us, but “to open our horizons” to further dimensions, giving meaning even to everyday occurrences. Advent is a time to wait, listen and ponder the awesome wonder of God who sent his only son as a baby to save us. Pause and spend some time this season reflecting on God’s gift of love.
