After a difficult year, we're preparing to celebrate Advent to its fullest extent as we get excited to tell the greatest story of all time, the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.
This Advent, we want to encourage you all around the Diocese to come together in communion, faith, joy and celebration. Here's what we're up to:
Every night of Advent at 6pm, we'll be live from our Facebook page with special guests from around the world reciting the Advent prayer.
We'd love to see videos of you saying the Advent prayer, you can send them to us through direct messaging on our socials or by emailing them. You can find the prayer below:
