The First Sunday of Advent Yr. B

Psalter/Daily Office Book Wk. 1

Sung Mass 11.00am

Welcome to our Sunday Mass today for the First Sunday of Advent. The clear call of the Gospel is to be vigilant and awake. Some people in our world have no choice but to remain alert. Alert to the possibility of Western weapons falling into their places of rest or refuge. Some have to stay awake because of the fears of some terrestrial disaster befalling their homes; maybe directly due to the vast changes in climate. We may have the privilege of choice in this matter and are called to use that choice freely. Let always remember those whose silent call is for others to wake up this Advent 2023. We begin the Gospel of Mark today. More about ‘Mark’ during the Mass.

Thank you to those who stayed back for the PCC last week. Your time was much appreciated.
