Christmas at St Mary's

Advent Reflections

We're often told Advent should be a time of reflection, but it can be hard to know how to go about this. The Follow the Star Advent Reflection provides a series of questions to ask yourself and things to think about in each week of Advent - click here to see them. Alternatively you can find a display in the porch at St Mary's with all the materials and some activities to complete.
