HAPPY NEW YEAR!
On November 30 we lit the first of four Advent candles, symbolizing a season of peace, hope, joy and love. While for many of us is also a time of deadlines, travel, guests, parties and endless trips to the shopping mall, the Church gives us the Advent season to help us focus on the coming season of Christmas and what it means to us as Christians.
At Saint Patrick Fallowfield, our bulletin cover features a traditional Advent wreath. While this is the darkest time of the year, those four candles help us focus on the reality that there is always light in the midst of darkness. Advent is above all a time of preparation and waiting. It is a difficult season, because most of our preparation and waiting is aimed at things outside of the celebration of the liturgy. Each of us are encouraged though, in what is for most the busiest time of the year, to remember the true meaning of Christmas and to reach out to those who are less fortunate.
The website includes the times for our Sunday Masses and the Christmas and New Year’s schedule.
Please know that you are always welcome at Saint Patrick’s Fallowfield!
