Advent explained in 2 minutes
We are in a time of 'joyful waiting', and, as the short video says, if you are sick of Christmas by the 25th, you are doing Advent wrong!
What is behind your Advent Calendar door today? We would love you to email us a pic of your advent calendars! - does yours have pictures, pockets, chocolate? Is it home made, brand new or dusted off and brought out every year! Please share your photos with the parish.
Let us know how you got on...
(A reminder, that Mike is happy to add your email address to his weekly Quiz round mailing if you would like it - contact us with your details via messenger or the parish email)
"Priest" - the film
"Priest is a beautifully shot film chronicling life in the Bradford parish of ‘Mary, Mother of God’ in non-pandemic times from the beginning of Lent to Easter Sunday. It is produced and directed by filmmaker Michael Whyte."
Watch the trailer here - The film is available on Amazon Prime or on DVD
We have such talented Parishioners here at St Augustine's!
Sue Stricker and Petra Jordan are organising to sell lavender bags and Christmas wreaths for donation to our Parish Projects.
Sue says "The lavender bags smell divine, keep the moths at bay and the scent is good for relaxation very much needed in this time of COVID!"
The beautiful wreaths can be used as a fabulous table centerpiece.
If you are interested in buying them (suggested donation of £1 for 3 bags and £8-£10 for each wreath) then please contact Petra Jordan to arrange pick up and payment.
Thank you ladies!
