Advent Calendar

This year's Advent Calendar acknowledges the struggles we've faced but looks to the future with hope - a new dawn with Jesus Christ at its heart.

For this year’s Advent Calendar we’re acknowledging that it has been a very different year – a challenging time for all of us. In the face of COVID-19, we have sought the face of Christ – caring and compassionate, bringing consolation and hope.

Many have suffered. Many have lost. Many have mourned the interruption to our sacramental lives – often for many weeks at a time.

But when our churches have been empty, the celebration of Mass has continued. So, anticipating the coming of Christ at Christmas, we remember the painful times but look to the future with hope.

The “closed door” for each day is black and white, the church empty, but we open the door to colour – a new dawn with Jesus Christ at its heart.
