Fógraí / Newsletter December 10th 2017



Lord Jesus,

on this Advent day and at this Advent time,

we long for your coming among us;

our hearts desire the warmth of your love

and our lives search for

your presence among us.


You call each of us by name,

to proclaim the Good News of your Son,

Jesus Christ through witness,

worship and service.


Increase our longing for you

and give us the courage to grow in love,

with one another in our parishes and communities.

To you we say “Come, Lord Jesus”.



We invite all the young children to bring the Infant Jesus from your Family Crib to the 6.00pm Vigil Mass for a special blessing.    

NB: If any family or their children would like to participate in the 6pm Mass on Christmas Eve e.g. Readings, Prayer of the Faithful, bringing up the gifts, etc. Please contact the Parish Office by Friday December 15th.
