Advent at the Abbey

This event has ended

The famous Benedictine author Sr Maria Boulding once famously asked: “what is the point of Christ’s coming, if Christ does not come to me?” 

Advent is an opportune time to welcome Christ into one’s life and to be transformed. It is ‘A Season of Opportunities’, as the title of our Advent 2023 series of talks suggests, to prepare for the central gift at Christmas: the coming of Jesus Christ. 

+ Fr Columba McCann begins the series with his talk ‘Stay Awake, Stay Alive!’ on Sunday 3rd December. 

+ Fr John O’Callaghan will urge us to ‘Prepare the Way for the Lord!’ on Sunday 10th December.

+ Fr Simon Sleeman will conclude the series with his reflection ‘Advent: The ‘Call Room’ for Christmas’ on Sunday 17th December. 

Talks take place at 4.30pm in the Monastery Library, followed by refreshments and Vespers at 6pm. Donation: €20. Talks will be available as recordings online soon afterwards.
