ADVENT SUNDAY (1st December)

Advent Sunday. We light the Advent candles and remember the rich Advent themes of Jesus coming into the world – at Christmas, at Mass, at the end of time and into our hearts day by day. Mass is at 8am and 10.30am at St Michael’s and 10.30am at St Lawrence’s. St Michael”s also has 30 Minute Worship at 9.30am. At 6pm we have a special service of Advent music and readings.

During Advent we are asking people to read a chapter of Luke’s Gospel each day. This means that we will all finish the Gospel on Christmas Eve (Luke has 24 chapters, Advent this yea has 24 days). Please join us in this reading – 5 minutes a day will help us remember Jesus in a season that is so busy.
