Today we begin the holy
season of Advent, when we prepare to remember Our Lords first coming as a child
in Bethlehem and also look forward to his return in glory on the last day. To
help us in our preparation there will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
and confessions being heard each Wednesday of Advent from 6-7pm in Church.
Advent books, calendars and magazines continue to be available at the back of
church; all free. With the Year of Mercy beginning on 8th December
why not make a confession this advent, normal times on Saturday and on those Wednesday
evenings. The new Parish Mass Books are in use from today, donated in memory of
Pat King and Henry Balestra, may they rest in peace. The readings for today can
be found on page 82. Handouts with the mass readings in the Polish language
continue to be available at the back of Church, there are also small mass
books. Special worksheets for children are also available in church today,
taking the theme of the Sunday readings. After the 9.30am mass today 31 children enrolled on the 1st Holy Communion
course, will be having their 2nd session of preparation immediately after mass
in the parish hall.
