  • Bishop Patrick's pastoral letter for Advent
    30 November 2016

    Bishop Patrick has issued a pastoral letter for Advent, in which he encourages us to pray for our priests and for vocations to priesthood and religious life.

    “This Season of Advent is divided into two periods. From today until 16th December, the Church directs our gaze beyond the First Coming of Christ to his Second Coming in glory. The second period, from 17th December until Christmas Eve, directs our gaze towards the First Coming of Christ in his Birth at Bethlehem. Advent truly is a season of joyful and spiritual expectation. It is therefore a providential time to begin afresh our prayer throughout the Diocese for more vocations to the priesthood, permanent diaconate and religious life.”
