Advent and Adoremus Christ the King celebrates all our feasts through the year, recognising Christ at the centre of them, and us at the receiving end of their benefits and blessings. Such is the profundity of these feasts that the following week we begin Advent and celebrate them all over again. The new Church’s Year 2018-19 is a chance to bring in the fruits of Adoremus , the recent Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool, and think of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament here in our parish church.
To begin with, there’s an extra Exposition, starting on Tuesday December 4th and on following Tuesdays, 6pm-7pm, for anyone passing to drop in for a moment or two.
This newsletter will also carry regular reflections on the Sacrament.
Any further suggestions?
