THIS WEEK AT ST MARY MAGDALENE’S

SATURDAY, 29 November
10.00 am Advent Quiet Day – “A Meditation on the Art of Waiting”
A day of prayer and contemplation. How can the times of waiting in our lives be times of spiritual fruitfulness? We begin with mass at 10.00 am, followed by a light breakfast, several short reflections, and time for silent prayer. Please bring a bag lunch, and let us know if you are coming so that we can plan for the breakfast.
5.00 pm “An Evening for Advent”
Start preparing your hearts and minds for the coming of Jesus by sharing a meal. Then get creative and make a wreath to decorate your home as the four-week period of waiting and expectation begins. The cost is $20.00 per wreath to cover the cost of supplies and food.
