ADVENT .....A new BEGINNING! We prepare for the coming of The Saviour. As we look forward to the celebration of the birth of our Saviour we will be reminded of the message of the angels...."do not be afraid. Listen, we bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord".
ADVENT ..a TIME of PREPARATION to receive an important guest...EMMANUEL...our God with us! In the 'business' of life at this time of the year it is important to find some moments for PRAYER/REFLECTION ........so that when our 'GUEST' comes, we are ready.
With prayers for God’s Blessings and His peace for you and your loved ones.

WHO ARE WE AS A CHURCH?
WHAT ARE WE CALLED TO DO?
JOIN AN "ENGAGE!" GROUP TO DISCUSS!
Are these questions you sometimes ask yourself? All parishes in our Diocese have formed small home groups to follow a yearly 6-week programme of discussion from 2012-2015, to mark the 50 year anniversary of the Arundel & Brighton Diocese.
The gatherings for last year and this year have been very positive, interesting and formed great discussions as each member of the small group comes from a different background and have different stories and experiences to share. This is a time for renewal and an opportunity to help you understand Catholicism or the modern Church.
To find out about a group near you on a day that suits you please contact the Parish Office.
Our Parish Supports the APF, the official support organisation for the overseas mission of the Catholic Church which supports every mission diocese in the world. Many of our Parishioners hold a "Red Box" in their homes where they collect loose change. These boxes are collected and counted every six months by a team of people from the Parish. To take a Red Box please contact the Parish Office. To find out more about the Mission www.missio.org.uk or www.millhillmissonaries.com
