Nine Lessons and Carols - Next Sunday evening at 6pm we will have a service of carols and lessons here in St German’s. Carols will be sung by a small group of up to six singers which complies with current government guidance. Please join us. If you’d like to read one of the short lessons please see Fr Phelim. A rehearsal for this takes place after mass today.
O Antiphon Week of Prayer - A week of prayer begins this Thursday and continues each evening in either St Saviour’s or St German’s. It is an opportunity for us to prepare spiritually and spend more time in prayer as we look forward to the coming of Christ at Christmas. NB Next Sunday the earlier time of 3pm in St Saviour’s because of the 9 lessons service later in the evening at St G’s.
Advent and Christmas - Please take a copy of the Advent and Christmas services flyer from the back of the church. It will be crucial to book a place in advance for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and so there will be a services sign up page at the back of the church for current congregation members. If you are inviting family please also fill in their names. Priority will go to current church members yet we want to also keep some space for those who only visit once a year or so.
Advent Prayer - The Church in Wales will pray a simple prayer each evening of Advent at 6pm. If you’d like to join in, the prayer text is on our website.
Calendar - Calendars can be collected after mass today. Please see Richard Davey.
Darkness into Light - This campaign is varied and involves torchbearers, singing carols from door stops as well as churches throughout Wales shining their lights each Sunday evening at 6pm to be a sign of renewed hope as we endure still the coronavirus pandemic. See our website for more details.
Llandaff Matters - In place of Croeso the diocese has moved to a weekly online update on life and ministry in the diocese. It is called Llandaff Matters and we are encouraging everyone to sign up to the weekly email list. Details on our website and on a poster at the back of the church.
