Advent Wreath: The Liturgical season of Advent commences today and we enter into the start of a new Church Year. The new Liturgical Year is Year C of a three-year cycle. You will notice that the colour of the priest’s vestments, the Lectionary cover and the banners is purple. The first candle (purple) of the Advent wreath, which symbolizes HOPE, will be lit at all Masses. The Jesse Tree symbols of the Sun and Moon, symbols of Creation, and Noah’s Ark will be hung on the Jesse Tree within the Family Mass.

Jubilee Year of Mercy: Be Merciful just as Your father is Merciful (Lk 6:36) On 8th December, the 50th anniversary of the closing of the 2ND Vatican Council, Pope Francis will open the holy Door, in the Vatican, which will become a Door of Mercy, inviting everyone to experience the love of God who consoles, pardons and instils hope. In this Jubilee holy Year, Jesus calls on us to open our hearts to those on the extreme fringe of society; fringes which modern society itself creates. During this year, Pope Francis asks us to show mercy and forgiveness to ourselves and to all we meet. The Diocese has prepared Advent Packs containing material for the Year of Mercy and these will be distributed after Mass.
