Sat., 8 Dec.: Conception of the BVM: Mass at 11 AM
This festival in honour of the Conception
of the Mother of our Lord is celebrated
on this day in both the Eastern
and the Western Church. This feast,
which dates from the seventh century,
marks the dawn of the New Covenant,
celebrating the gracious preparation by
God of his people to receive their Saviour
and Lord, putting ‘heaven in ordinary’
and showing that mortal flesh can
indeed bring Christ to the world.

Wed., 26 Dec.: St. Stephen: Mass at 10 AM
In the Acts of the Apostles, St Stephen is
described as one of the first seven deacons
appointed to care for the widows
in the early Church in Jerusalem. He is
the Church’s proto-martyr, the first to
bear witness to Christ by offering his life.
The name ‘Stephen’ means, appropriately, ‘crown’.


Thurs., 27 Dec.: St. John: Mass at 7 PM
St John was one of the sons of Zebedee,
along with James, who followed Jesus.
He is described as ‘the disciple whom
Jesus loved’, and was one of the inner
circle of Jesus’ followers who witnessed
and shared in all the major events of
our Lord’s ministry. In both the Gospel
that bears his name and in the epistles
credited to him, the powerful theological
concept of the incarnate Word of
God is proclaimed. St John is believed
to have been the only one of our Lord’s
disciples to have lived to old age and
not to have been put to death for his
faith in the One who loved him and the
One whom he loved. It is thought that
he died in Asia Minor.


Fri., 28 Dec.: Holy Innocents: Mass at 7PM
Although there is no historical evidence
outside the Holy Scriptures for the massacre
of the children of Bethlehem by
King Herod, it is an act consistent with
his other misdeeds that are well documented
by non-scriptural sources. Today
is a particularly appropriate occasion
to remember all innocent victims of
human cruelty.
