ADVENT MORNING PRAYER

28th November 2022

After a break of 3 years we can now recommence morning prayer during Advent. Everyone is invited to journey through the Advent season commencing on Monday 28th November at 7.30am each weekday morning.

We will, once again, pray the Psalms in the morning office and reflect on the readings for Advent. We will meet in the church and probably in the side chapel, depending on numbers. This has proved to be an excellent way of preparing together for the Christmas season.


Women walking through Advent together

30th November 2022

Our Women’s Prayer Group meets the last Wednesday of each month but for Advent we will meet weekly for 4 weeks, on 30th November, 7th, 14th and 21st December, at 7.45pm in No 40 Derryvolgie Ave.

This time of year can be particularly busy and stressful for women so why not come and join us for some quiet , prayerful preparation for Christmas. A time for you to just stop and find space to welcome our blessed Lord and to listen to what He has to say to us.

Everyone is welcome and please don't worry if you can’t come every week, you will be remembered in our prayers.

3rd December 2022

Society of St. Vincent de Paul

You can also donate online through your bank to SVP St Brigid’s Conference. DANSKE BANK Account No: 41024701 Sort Code: 950132

Toy Voucher Collection

Further to our earlier notice and building on last year’s success of giving toy vouchers to families. We would like to remind you, that in order to give families time to buy the toys they require we need to collect toy vouchers at the latest at the Masses on 3rd/4th December.

Vouchers will be distributed to families the week commencing 5th December.

Heating Donations

We have in the past also collected money for Heating and if you wish to provide for this purpose please put your donation, cash or cheques made payable to St Brigid’s SVP and placed in an envelope marked Heating, to provide heat for a family over the winter. The rapid increases in cost of heating will leave many families unable to heat their homes, so any amount towards this would be most welcome

SVP Christmas Cards will be available from THIS WEEKEND

Thank you sincerely for your continued support.
