Five Advent Steps to Prepare....
Daily Prayer. ... you are encouraged to spend some time in prayer in our parish churches. At Mass listen attentively to the readings or reflect on them at www.sacredspace.ie. They remind us of the longing and hope for a Messiah.
Support a local Charity if you can.... Many groups are highlighting the work they do including the Saint Vincent de Paul and the Lions Club.
Put a Crib in a prominent place in your home.... The crib reminds us of the real reason for the forthcoming season.
Go to Confession.... Jesus died for our sins- The Sacrament is available on Saturday afternoons in the Cathedral and on December 23/4
Attend the Cathedral Carol Service... This takes place on the Sunday evening before Christmas at 5.30pm. Carols help reflect the true meaning of the coming season.
