It’s Advent…

Dear parishioners and friends of our 3 Churches,

It’s Advent – a new Church year. The season’s themes point us to the future, and we are invited to prepare not just for the great feast of December 25 .

This first Sunday we also prepare for the great Second Coming of Christ, and so find ourselves “in between”. We are in between the first and second advents of Jesus. Our faith rooted in the first gives us great expectation of the second, and a firm and clear route to get from the one to the other – the road of the Gospel.

As the Year of the Word moves to its conclusion, let us set out on this royal road with renewed faith and conviction.
