St Brides Reflections for Advent 2020

The season of Advent is quickly approaching. But what does this mean for each one of us? Many people see Advent as an early Christmas filled only with the busyness of shopping, wrapping, baking, and travelling. However, Advent is about growing closer to our beloved one, Jesus Christ. We are preparing our hearts for His coming at Christmas. We’re also preparing our souls for His second coming at the end of time. Even though we have many tasks throughout Advent, we can use this opportunity on the liturgical calendar to learn pray and reflect more and open our hearts to God’s love and healing.

Sixteen parishioners from St Bride’s have prepared a series of Advent reflections that will guide you on your adventure. Our hope is that you will be able to slow down this Advent and turn your gaze to the infant in the manger.The Booklet is available in St Bride’s Church and a digital version is now available on our websites. May God bless you. And may this coming Advent prepare you for the wonder of the Incarnation at Christmas.

A Christmas Programme has also been prepared covering all the activities and events this Advent for St Brides, West Kilbride and St Peters, Ardrossan.
