With the so-called Christmas Rush upon us once again it can be hard to get space to remember the real meaning of these days.
Butt behind the rush the slow gentle breathing of Advent, our time of preparation for the coming of Christ at Christmas, may be heard if we become quiet enough to hear.
If you are finding it hard to get listening space these days then why not come along to Night Fever in our Friary in Kilkenny city on Friday the 11th of December: a Candlelit Vigil before the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
It includes music and silence and even the opportunity of reconciliation to help you prepare for Christmas and make it meaningful again.
Beginning with 7:30pm Mass and continuing until 11pm you can attend it all or drop in for a few minutes along the way.
All are welcome.
