PLEASE THE POSTER FOR THE ADVENT TO CHRISTMAS SERVICES

WELCOME to our Sunday Mass today for the Third Sunday of Advent (The opening Antiphon says rejoice it is called Gaudete Sunday). There may seem little to ‘rejoice’ at in the news. Perhaps we can recall today Jesus’ reading in the Synagogue at Capernaum. ‘To bind up hearts that are broken’. Our First reading. We recall Jesus’s land was occupied and there was such corruption and slaughter too. Yet they found a space to hold onto some ‘joy’. Let us not be blind, or deaf, or lame to the cries for justice and peace in the world and the Middle East especially. As we take time today to recall there was and can be joy in the world.

Later today at 4.00pm there is an Advent Service of Carols proposed at the last PCC.  We have Benediction too. It follows the same lines as last year. I have booked special entertainment From the Variety Collective. There is a Buffet Table and drinks. Please do return today at 4pm and bring those at home with you!

There are Services and Mass Daily. Please see notice board.
