On Sunday December 2nd we begin another journey into the Advent season. This Sunday in the group there will only be one celebration which will be in the Parish Eucharist at 11:00am followed by coffee in SS Peter & Paul in Kirton.
Advent is a season of expectation and preparation, as the Church prepares to celebrate the coming (adventus) of Christ in his incarnation, and also looks ahead to his final advent as judge at the end of time. The readings and liturgies not only direct us towards Christ’s birth, they also challenge the modern reluctance to confront the theme of divine judgement: Every eye shall now behold him robed in dreadful majesty. (Charles Wesley)
