BAMBINELLI SUNDAY
15th December 2019

BAMBINELLI SUNDAY AT ST BRIGID’S

The Third Sunday of Advent is known as Gaudete Sunday - a day to rejoice in the Lord.

During his pontificate, St. John Paul II chose this day to start a new Advent tradition which he called "Bambinelli Sunday.” Bambinelli is the Italian word that means, "Little Baby Jesus”.

 

On Sunday 15th December we will have Bambinelli Sunday at St Brigid’s. At the end of the Vigil and Sunday Masses, we will bless your figures of Baby Jesus that we encourage you to bring with you to Mass from your home crib. Following the blessing, take your Bambinelli home, gift wrap it and save it for Christmas. Let this be the first gift your family opens on Christmas, when you place your Baby Jesus in the crib - this celebration is especially enjoyable for the children of the parish, young and old!

 

DON’T FORGET YOUR BABY JESUS ON THE 15TH DECEMBER! 

A limited number of baby Jesus figurines will be available to buy from the GIFT group before all Masses at £5.00 each.
