18) Rejoice! Receiving and Sharing the Gift of the Good News - Advent Companion Coming Soon
Churches will soon be open, and Advent will be upon us. With gratitude in our hearts, let us gather in our parishes to prepare a welcome for the newborn Jesus at Christmas and to be channels of His peace and joy to those around us. The Parish Renewal Team has developed an Advent Companion containing Gospel readings for Sundays and Christmas Day, spiritual reflections by Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP, Professor Tracey Rowland, Sr Susanna Edmunds OP, Fr Anthony Robbie, and Elizabeth Arblaster, and other resources for mediation. Designed for individual or group prayer, either in-person or online. The resource will be available for download on the Go Make Disciples website in mid-November. Training on how to run an Advent group, online or in-person, will also be available in November. For more information, contact Helen Wagner at helen.wagner@
