Season of Advent
Advent Wreath: The Liturgical Season of Advent begins on Sunday, 29th November
when we enter into the start of a new Church Year, which is Year B of a three-year cycle. You will notice the Advent banners (purple) hanging in the church and you will also observe that the celebrant is wearing purple vestments. In addition, the cover of the Lectionary is purple. The first candle of the Advent Wreath (purple), which symbolises HOPE, will be lit at Sunday Mass.

My  Advent Prayer

How dark outside!
but see – a star’s in the sky;
Mary and Joseph are passing by.
So let’s light a candle to welcome them
as they go on their way to Bethlehem.
We’ll light a candle at home each day,
We’ll light a candle each week and pray.
