It will soon be Advent…

Dear parishioners and friends of our 3 Churches

Time is rushing on, and it will soon be Advent. Please note all these dates.

On Wednesday 9th December, to start us off there will be an Advent Service 7pm at St Brigid’s, live-streamed as usual. The Diaconate Ordination of Christian Mahoney will now take place at the Cathedral on Sunday afternoon 13 December.

A week later, on Sunday 20th December there will be a Zoom Carol Service for which we will give details later.

In the following weekdays leading up to Christmas, there will be a Children’s Event in each church called the “Bambinelli”. Each child is invited to bring the Christ child from their home crib to be blessed ready to be put in the manger for Christmas. More details to follow.

And finally, our expected Mass times for Christmas will be as follows:

  • Christmas Eve 6pm at St Paul’s and Christ the King, 8pm at St Brigid’s
  • Christmas Morning as on Sundays, 9am at St Paul’s and Christ the King, 10.30am at St Brigid’s

Important note: owing to the large number of people who usually attend, Christmas Eve and Morning Masses will be by booking only. Details of how to book will be given via this newsletter on Sunday 5 December. Please do not try to book before then.

Fr Matthew
