A big thank you to everyone who has signed up to receive the images of the Holy Family into their homes during this Advent season.  Joseph and Mary will begin their journey on Sunday 1st December at the 11 a.m. Mass where they will be entrusted to the first family that will welcome them.

The Holy Family will spend each night during Advent in a different home.  Each day a host family will pass on our travelling Nativity to the next family who will then host the Holy Family for one night.  The knitted figures of Mary and Joseph can easily be included in a family activity, such as a family meal, shopping trip, family outing or play time, etc.  This will help individuals and families focus on the meaning of Advent, by being part of the Holy Family’s journey to the Crib.  A sheet with prayers for a short welcoming service arrives with Mary and Joseph at each home.
