Passing on the Light

Candle flameDear parishioners and friends of our 3 Churches,

Darkness in the morning, darkness in the evening, darkness on the news. How warmly we welcome the light of the news of the vaccines. We all long for the light, we all can pass on the light. So please join us this Wednesday for our special Advent Service “Passing on the Light” 7pm live-streamed from St Brigid’s. I look forward to welcoming you.

Fr Matthew

It’s Advent…

Dear parishioners and friends of our 3 Churches,

It’s Advent – a new Church year. The season’s themes point us to the future, and we are invited to prepare not just for the great feast of December 25 .

This first Sunday we also prepare for the great Second Coming of Christ, and so find ourselves “in between”. We are in between the first and second advents of Jesus. Our faith rooted in the first gives us great expectation of the second, and a firm and clear route to get from the one to the other – the road of the Gospel.

As the Year of the Word moves to its conclusion, let us set out on this royal road with renewed faith and conviction.

Fr Matthew
