PRAYER FOR OUR PARISH
Advent marks a New Church Year and a time for resolutions. I invite all parishioners to pray this Advent for our Parish as we begin a New Year as a Parish family. After Christmas we will be looking for people to help with Parish Ministry and to build up our Parish community as we emerge from COVID and begin planning for the future along with the rest of our Diocese. But to guide those plans may this Advent be a time of prayerful reflection so that God will awaken in us his way forward and his plans for all of us in our local Church community. St Agnes pray for us.
