Advent is here!

Advent, which begins the Church’s liturgical year, began on Sunday. Advent encompasses the four Sundays and weekdays leading up to the celebration of Christmas. Three of the candles are purple because the colour violet is a liturgical colour that signifies a time of prayer, penance, and sacrifice.  This week we light the first candle which symbolises hope. Let’s see if we can all do this week’s mission and remember that this is a time to prepare for our Lord to come into our hearts. So, ‘Be awake, Be ready and Walk in the light this week through prayer’
