Advent & Christmas 2019 at The Most Holy Redeemer
Advent is a time for us to prepare for the celebration of the great mystery of our faith: "for God so loved the world that He sent his only son" (John 3:16)
We have a number of events taking place throughout the Advent Season in our church to which you are all warmly welcome to attend.
If it has been a while since the last time you have been to church then you are particularly welcome to make this Advent a chance to renew your faith by preparing to greet the birth of Christ at Christmas.
