27th January 2019 – Holocaust Memorial Day
The theme of this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day is
‘Torn from Home’ and encourages us to reflect on
how the enforced loss of a safe place to call ‘home’ is
part of the trauma faced by anyone experiencing
persecution and genocide. ‘Home’ usually means a
place of safety, comfort and security. On Holocaust
Memorial Day 2019 we will reflect on what happens
when individuals, families and communities are driven
out of, or wrenched from their homes, because of
persecution or the threat of genocide, alongside the
continuing difficulties survivors face as they try to find
and build new homes when the genocide is over.”

Newsletter 1st-2nd December 2018

From this newsletter:

The Advent wreath is old custom rich in symbolism that can help us to pray and is used as a reminder of the life-giving eternal promise given us as we journey through Advent. A candle is lit each Sunday, gradually building up the light as Christ’s coming draws nearer. Today we light the first candle of HOPE. The Catechism (524) stresses this two-fold meaning of this ‘coming’: When the Church celebrates the liturgy of Advent each year, she makes present this ancient expectancy of the Messiah, by sharing in the long preparation for the Saviour’s first coming, the faithful renew their ardent desire for His second coming
