 All Saints

We celebrate the lives of special and ordinary people who have responded to God’s invitation to love.


The Commemoration of all the Faithful Departed (All Souls)

(2 November)

Today and throughout the rest of November we pray for those who have died.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace. Amen.


Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe (21 November)


ADVENT (Begins 28 November)

Advent means ‘coming’. We think of the coming of Jesus when he was born but we also think of his promise that he would come again at the end of time. It is a time of waiting and preparing. It is only in the last week of Advent that we focus upon the events to be celebrated at Christmas.


The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

(8 December)

This feast marks the first stage of the existence of Mary, the mother of Jesus.

She was ‘full of grace’ from the very beginning and

co-operated with God throughout her life.


Christmas Day, The Nativity of the Lord

(25 December)

On this day we begin our celebration of the birth of Christ.


The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

(26 December)
