Time to Reflect

Advent is a season of the liturgical year when we are invited to step aside from the busy-ness of life and reflect on our spiritual journey – to “Prepare a way for the Lord” (Luke 3:4). On Saturday 15th December, from 2–5pm, there will be an opportunity for reflection and prayer in the Lady Chapel. The theme will be Our Lady – “The Lord has done great things for me” (Luke 1:49).

You are welcome. Please sign-up if you plan to come (it helps with resources etc.).

Sign-up sheets at both entrances.

Awaiting a Saviour

The Saviour whom we await [at Advent] is able to transform our life with his grace, with the power of the Holy Spirit, with the power of love. The Holy Spirit, in fact, infuses our hearts with God’s love, the inexhaustible source of purification, of new life and freedom. The Virgin Mary fully lived this  reality, allowing herself to be ‘baptized’ by the Holy Spirit who inundated her with his power. May she, who prepared for the coming of Christ with the totality of her existence, help us to follow her example and may she guide our steps to the coming Lord.

Our Parish AMAZING Prayer

Heavenly Father,
we thank you for gathering us together
and for calling us to serve as your disciples.
You have charged us through your Son Jesus
with the great mission of evangelising and of witnessing your love to the world.
Send your Holy Spirit to guide us as we discern your will
for the spiritual renewal of our parish.
Give us strength, courage, and clear vision as we use our gifts to serve you.
We entrust our parish family to the care of St Mary of the Angels, our Mother,
and ask for her intercession as we strive to bear witness to the Gospel
and build an AMAZING parish.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
