Advent is here!
As we prepare for the Advent of the liturgical year in 2018, we enter into a sacred time in the Church.
Sacraments make the actions and gifts of Jesus present to the Church each time it gathers to celebrate Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Ordination or Matrimony.
