ADVENT TREE: During the season of Advent we prepare ourselves to welcome the Baby Jesus into our hearts and our homes. Last Sunday we lit our first candle on the Advent wreath in remembrance of each generation from Abraham through David through the prophets, who waited and hoped. As we too now wait in hope, let us acknowledge and pray for those, who for one reason or another, will not be “with us” this Christmas.

Perhaps you know a loved one who has emigrated, passed away, someone suffering mental health difficulties, a hospital patient, someone suffering addiction, or Alzheimer’s disease? If you would like to remember a loved one, please take a card from the basket, put the individual/s name on it and hang it on the Advent Tree.  The cards hanging on the Advent Tree will be removed on Christmas Eve and will form part of the Offertory Procession at the Vigil Mass.

BEREAVED BY SUICIDE:  Are you finding it difficult to cope with a death by suicide of a family member, relative or friend? It may help to talk to a Clare Suicide Bereavement (Clare S.B.S.) volunteer.  We offer confidential and free support to people who have experienced a death by suicide. This time of year may be particularly difficult and it may help to talk about your pain.  Please phone or text. - 086 0565373 or 087369831
