Advent Wreath Third Sunday of Advent

Rejoice, the Lord is coming soon!  God sends his own Son to save us.  Joy and gladness are ours and the time for sorrow and lamenting is over.  Christ is standing at the gates and we know he is the one for whom we have been waiting.  Do not lose heart.  Take courage!  Your God is coming!  Prepare our hearts and remove the sadness that hinders us from feeling the joy and hope which his presence will bestow ... O come, O come, Emmanuel.

Advent and Christmas 2014

"The season of Advent always brings with it some things that are familiar and some that are new.  We are used to seeing Advent as an opportunity to make a fresh start ... over recent years Walk With Me has also become for many of us a welcome and familiar part of our Advent, enabling us day by day to be more at one with the Church's Advent message ..."   This year, the Walk With Me booklets provide us with a journey to follow through Advent and Christmastide as we share God's love with one another bringing joy, peace, hope and faith to those me meet as well as those we interact with daily in our life.  The First Sunday of Advent begins Sunday, 30th November 2014.

"Jesus Christ loves you: he gave his life for you; and he is living at your side every day to enlighten, strengthen and free you". 

"My child treat yourself well according to your means.  Don't deprive yourself of the day's enjoyment ... Joy is infectious, winning and attractive and it is this joy of the Gospel that we can know during the Advent season".

Heart Prayer


The Light of the World

"This image was originally painted by the world-famous artist, William Holman Hunt in 1900 and is titled ‘The Light of the World’. Every parish in England and Wales has received a copy.  It is hoped that they will be used to encourage people to pray in their homes and also as a source of grace and consolation to those who are not Catholics but wish to prayerfully sit with the Image.

‘A sermon in a frame,’ is one way this painting has been described such is the richness of its imagery. Please take a moment to observe and reflect on this. To find out more click here ...
