12 Days of Christmas

Saturday, December 24th, 2022

As we celebrate the wonder of Christmas, we ask our caring God to help us to listen, to the whisper of the hopeless, the plea of the forgotten, the cry of the anguished.

This booklet, produced by the Northern Pastoral Network, provides us with a series of reflections following the feasts of the twelve days of Christmas.You may want to use it in your private prayer or gather your family each day for a short time of prayer and reflection.

We pray this Christmas that, as we rejoice and give thanks with family and friends, each of us will rediscover the meaning of Our Lord’s Nativity and the great hope that it proclaims for the world.

Prayer at the Crib

Thursday, December 22nd, 2022

This Christmas we hope that people will be able to connect with their Parish Church.  For some that will be gathering for a celebration of Mass over the Christmas Season and for others it may simply be a time of quiet prayer, lighting a candle or visiting the crib. 

Visiting the Crib is a prayerful activity that we can encourage and the NPN have produced some resources to support Parishes.  The resources connect to Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter ADMIRABILE SIGNUM reflecting on the meaning and importance of the nativity scene.

A Summer Prayer

Sunday, July 17th, 2022

Long warm days…
The pace of life slows…
A time for picnics and rest in the shade…
Lord, help me to rest awhile
in the cooling shade of your presence.
Slow down my restless heart and
fill me with
gentle compassion for all your people.
