Parish News for the Third Week of Advent

December 8, 2022 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday, the Third of Advent, rose pink vestments are worn and we will light the rose-colored candle as we celebrate Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete simply means “rejoice,” and is taken from the first words of the entrance antiphon, “Gaudete in Domino semper” – Rejoice in the Lord always. And so, as we make our final preparations for Christ’s coming – we rejoice!.Click here for the scripture readings.
