ADVENT – SEASON OF HOPE
Today we begin Advent. While the outside world is already celebrating the materialistic version of Christmas, we are beginning this beautiful time which is a season in its own right, with its own distinctive characteristics and dynamics. Let us live these days with intensity and faith, making the most of the opportunity to look for the coming of Christ in our world today. He brings healing, liberation and salvation to our world and to our own hearts too. May God bless us in these days as we prepare for the religious celebration of Christmas, the feast of heavenly light, when ‘the Word was made flesh’ (John 1:14). Fr David

FR TOM:

As I retire this weekend I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone. It has been a blessing to be Parish Priest here over the past 16 years and I will miss Parish life very much. I know you will give Fr David the same warm welcome you extended to me when I arrived and wish you all every blessing for the future’ ~ Fr Tom.
