This week there are many opportunities for our young people, staff, parents and friends to join with us to prepare for the Nativity of The Lord.
At 4pm on Monday we mark the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception in the Forum with introductory prayers followed by the rosary procession to the Oratory for Eucharistic Adoration.
Mass at 8.25am on Tuesday celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Loreto. A new feast added to the calendar by Pope Francis to recall the mystery of the Incarnation, when in ‘the fullness of time,’ the Virgin Mary responded to the message of the Angel Gabriel.
Our Advent Service on Tuesdy at 3.45pm, in the school’s Oratory, will be led by the S5 Catholic Leadership Group.
Pope Francis has written an Apostolic Letter on the meaning and importance of the incarnation of Jesus made visible in the Christmas crèche. Click on the link below to access the full document:
