Parish Priest - Father Anton's Weekly Column

28th November - 1st Sunday of Advent - Year C

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

First of all may I wish you a “Happy New Year” in the life of the Church! Advent is a time of preparation by means of penance and abstinence in preparation for the wonderful Feast of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, the Son of God. It is the Incarnation.

Secondly hearty congratulations to all our children and their families on the occasion of our children’s first reception of Holy Communion. Know that the Lord Jesus is always there ready and waiting for us! Thank you to all our school and support staff who have given up their spare time to support this and next week’s events.

Please note that the first of our new streaming service takes place this week at the 10 a.m. Mass. In the New Year we will be looking at installing a more sophisticated camera with the ability to zoom in and scan. For the moment it is a simple static view.

Stay safe and cautious in present times.

God bless,.

Father Anton s.c.j.
