The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light”.

Sick and housebound parishioners will receive the Sacraments at home. If you know of any sick or housebound parishioners who would like to receive the Sacraments, please contact the Parish office.

Blessing of the Advent Wreath.

God our Father we ask your blessing on this Advent Wreath – an unbroken circle of evergreens.

With each passing week our Advent wreath will grow ever brighter.

May the light of your Spirit show this community the path we need to walk if Christ is to be born in our hearts and in our community this Advent season.
