Good morning, it’s the last Sunday of Advent and we have a moment to reflect upon Gabriel’s visit to Mary. “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God” This Advent season has presented our families with different challenges. As we embark upon our last weekend of Advent may we focus on how we have found favor with God.
We hope you’ll be joining us for Mass today either at any of the in-person Masses or the 10am livestream.
