Advent, Christmas waiting time ...

This Advent season would not be a favorable time at the heart of this particular period, difficult for our Church, to awaken our hope.

Every Advent Sunday, we will be stimulated by a proposal:

“Stay awake! »(1st Sunday of Advent)

“Prepare the way! »(2nd Sunday of Advent)

“Be in joy! »(3rd Sunday of Advent)

“You are blessed among all women! »(4th Sunday of Advent)

“A child is born to us! " (Xmas)

And we are always invited to find a new impetus to live together and new benchmarks to live our faith, our life in Church ...

With the 1st Sunday of Advent, a new Roman Missal comes into effect.

The conduct of Mass does not change.

The translation of texts and prayers has undergone some modifications.

Regarding the participation of the assembly, there are some modifications in the ritual of the Mass, in particular in the responses of the faithful. A leaflet will be communicated to let people know about the changes.

Little by little, we will conform to the new missal.

Let's face it that we are so used to the formulas of the Mass that we can fall into the routine.

So let us welcome this new missal as a beautiful opportunity offered to us to renew our way of living the Eucharist in communion with the whole Church.

With the 1st Sunday of Advent begins a new liturgical year, the year C.

As in previous years, Sunday missals for year C are available at the Hermenault presbytery at a price of € 10
