Advent Study Groups

The Advent Study Groups will be reflecting on some of the great Advent Antiphons, featuring some Messianic titles which have become associated with Jesus in the Early Church. As in previous years, two groups will be held (Wednesday mornings 10.30 am on the 4, 11 and 18 December and Thursday evenings at 8.15 pm on 5, 12 and 19 December). Sign-up sheets are at the back of the church.
