Liturgical Year

The Church’s liturgical year begins with Advent, when our preparations look forward to Christ’s first coming at Christmas and towards his second coming at the end of time. There is very much a feel of joyful expectation and hope throughout the season. The children of the parish are involved throughout our principal Mass each week; lighting the Advent candles and reading the wreath prayers, participation in their own liturgy and the offertory procession and a post-Communion song.
