Special Advent Sunday Prayer
The season of Advent is a season of waiting for Jesus to come both on Christmas day and at the end of time. Evening Vigils are a special way we spend time waiting "in joyful hope" for Jesus. So for the Sundays of Advent (Nov 27, Dec 4, 11) in the Parish Church, there will be a Eucharistic Holy Hour at 5pm, with reflections, Evening Prayer and the Rosary. The evening concludes with Benediction at 6pm. All are welcome!
