Many thanks to Father Michael who attended Class 3 and 4’s Advent Service and also blessed our School Advent Wreath. This week we have lit the first candle – the purple candle that represents hope during the Season of Advent.

Bambinelli Sunday is on Sunday 16th December. This is the 3rd Sunday of Advent and Father Michael asks that from our Cribs / Nativity scenes at home, we bring the baby Jesus to be blessed in church before returning to your homes. This Mass takes place at 10am in St. Gabriel’s Church.
