St. Mary Star of the Sea Church – Pallottine Fathers
Advent 2021 – Preparing for Christmas
To facilitate our spiritual preparation for Christmas I will be available for Confessions/Sacrament of Reconciliation before and after each Mass on the weekend of December 18th/19th.
Sadly, for the second year in a row we will not be able to hold the usual 5pm children’s Mass on Christmas Eve. Instead, the church will be open all day on Christmas Eve from and I invite young family groups to come and visit the crib in the church, family by family as we did last year. There will be an opportunity for a brief prayer, to light a candle and take a photo. If the smaller children want to come dressed as angels or shepherds then that would be lovely.
The Masses on Christmas Eve December 24th will be at 6pm, 8pm and 10pm and on Christmas Day December 25th at 10am and 11.30am. There will be no evening Mass on December 25th. On Sunday December 26th Masses are as usual – 10am and 11.30am
Wishing you all the Love, Joy, Peace and Hope of the season.
