St Mary's College Advent Festival
Lord God, we rejoice as we remember the promise of your Son Jesus.
He would be with us to the end of time.
His reign will never end.
The Advent Wreath is a circle with no beginning and no end:
It symbolises the love of Our Lord encircling each one of us
And we are safe in his embrace.
May the blessings of Christ come upon us,
Those of us here at College and our families elsewhere.
Guide us all through Advent to the peace of Christmas.
May Christ our Saviour bring life into the darkness of our world,
And also to us as we wait for his coming.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Well done to Mr Cocks, the St Mary’s and Community choirs. The section of hymns and readings presented at the Advent service last night were beautiful. It was a great way to mark the start of the advent season. The medley of songs from ‘Beauty and the Beast’ sung to the gathered community in the JDLR was also outstanding; it demonstrates, yet again, what a talented group of students we have.
