DAY OF PRAYER AND RECONCILIATION.
On Wednesday, 18th December the parish will hold a day of prayer and reconciliation in preparation for Christmas. There will be adoration from 10.30am to 5.30pm. During the day there will be confession available. As a way of giving meaning to confession, and Christmas, people are invited to write down on a slip of paper a word that names something that is keeping them from getting closer to God. It might be a fear, a resentment, or an attitude that shuts them off from the love God so wants to give. Once a person is finished confession they will be invited to place their slip of paper in a box in front of the crib. Our slips of paper will be our gifts to God for Christmas.
Advent is a time when we realize that we need to let go of any and all spiritual impediments we are hanging onto that block God’s grace from having an effect on our lives.
