Today is the first day of Advent.
We lit the first candle of our Advent ring in memory of the Patriarchs.
Our Service continued with the readings from which we learned that from what appears to be dead can bust into life with the symbol of the Orchid Flower.
We then went into the building of our Christingles with the explanation of each item as they were placed to form the completed Christngle and we sung our praises ae we raised them up to God.
The service finished with the blessing of our Posada figures as they started their journey to the stable in Bethlehem for the Birth of Jesus on Christmas Day.
What an exhausting start to Advent this year our next Event is a contemplative Advent a period of Reflection at 7.30 pm on Wednesday Evenings 4-11-18 December at St. Peter’s Church. Then our next event at St. Mary’s is the Christmas Fun Afternoon including Messy Christmas at 3 pm on 14th Dec.
