PRAYER

Prayer is communication with God who loves us as we are, unconditionally. We encourage you to take any opportunity to pray, including the ones listed below:

 

EUCHARIST: Please join us for prayer as a community.  The Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. Please join us for daily (posted at the back of the church) and Weekend Mass times.

 

MASS READINGS: You can find the daily readings here.

 

STATIONS OF THE CROSS: You could pray the stations of the cross at the church or in your home

 

SATURDAY EVENING PRAYER GROUP:  Meets at 4:00pm in the Prayer Room, before the 5pm Mass, to pray for world peace and for our priests. All are welcome to come and recite the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet.

ROSARY FOR THE UNBORN: Every TUES at 1pm in the church near the tabernacle, when possible.

Please enter through the South doors (small parking lot with the alley).

ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT: on hold at the moment


The Hope and Joy of Advent

Nov 28 to Dec 24

The custom of the Advent wreath draws attention to the

Light that Christ brings us as Christmas approaches.

  It invites us to bear witness to that Light of the World.

 Jesus is our Hope, our Faith, our Joy and our Peace.

 

                                                         Pope Francis said,

                                                         “It is the beautiful task of Advent to awaken in all of us memories of goodness

                                                                            and thus to open the doors of hope."                       


Here is a beautiful reflection to start with each week's journey.

Each week, beginning on Sunday, 21 November 2021,

the Solemnity of Christ the King, and for the four Sundays of Advent,

the CCCB will release a video recording of a Bishop

reflecting on the Gospel Reading for each Sunday.

 

This year’s reflections were inspired by the Indigenous Delegation travelling to Rome to meet with Pope Francis from Dec 17 to 21, 2021
