 ADVENT –  BEGINNING  OF

THE  NEW LITURGICAL YEAR.

     The Church has her own special liturgical year and calendar in which she presents the history and mysteries of our salvation, from Creation to the Second Coming, together with the entire life of the Savior. Each Sunday and feast will present a special lesson to us for our daily living. The First Sunday of Advent is therefore the Church's "New Year's Day". In the Judeo-Christian tradition, Sunday begins at sundown of the day before; when the faithful celebrate First Vespers. We start Advent this Saturday, November 29th 5.00pm Holy Mass.

 

FIRST THURSDAY &

FRIDAY & SATURDAY

 

 This week we celebrate First Thursday - December 4th  - a day of special prayer for our priests, religious & seminarians. After 6.00PM Holy Mass, we expose the Blessed Sacrament and we celebrate THE HOLY HOUR.  First Friday - December 5th. After the Holy Masses, we expose the Blessed Sacrament and recite the Litany to the Sacred Heart, followed by Benediction. Extra Mass for home schooling children & their parents at 9.30AM. Other Parishioners are also welcomed to come and to pray with us if you have  time.   First Saturday - December 6th  - after 8.00AM Mass, there will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the

Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary will be recited.

 

BLESSING OF EXPECTANT MOTHERS

Will be next weekend, December 6/7 during Sat. 5.00PM, Sunday 8.30 & 10.30AM Masses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday Scripture

                 We are to be attentive to, and prepare for, the coming of the Lord, Jesus. Christians are to called to a particular attitude of life. We anticipate the fulfillment of the promise of Christ to return in glory. We must constantly be attentive to his coming. This attentive attitude is evident by a life of preparation. Daily, we are to faithfully live out the commands of the Lord so that when he comes he will find us to be faithful disciples.

                   Isaiah expresses a desire for the presence of the Lord in the midst of a people who have gone astray. Paul reminds the Corinthians of the great spiritual gifts that God has given them so as to prepare them for the day of the Lord.

Jesus uses the example of servants anticipating their master’s return to call his disciples to always be ready.
