Dear friends,

Happy New Year!

No I haven't turned too many pages in my diary, This Sunday is Advent Sunday and marks the beginning of a new Church Year.

Advent is a short season in the liturgical year
when we  prepare for the birth of Christ at the great Feast of Christmas. It is a season of penitence where purple vestments are worn. We will spend time in our mass readings with the Old Testament Prophets who looked forward to the birth of a Messiah.
The temptation for us is to begin Christmas a month early and miss out on preparing for it spiritually. Perhaps this Advent you might take up reading a meditation each day in the Advent book, a few are still for sale, or make time to come to one of our quieter weekday masses.

After mass on Sunday Simon will practice some Advent music with us around the piano, and the
home made produce and Christmas card stall will be open so please bring your purses and shopping bags!

On Sunday evening the whole parish will gather for an Advent carol service at St Michael's. Click here for more details.

See you on Sunday!
Fr James
