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”.
Fr. Joe would like to thank you for your prayer and support at this time of sadness on the loss of his brother Seán. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis. Your kindness is much appreciated by the family.
