YEAR OF COMMUNION: Following on from the Year of Prayer, the third cycle of this Diocesan initiative began on the First Sunday in Advent (the new liturgical year). The Year of Communion will focus on the spirituality of Communion and how we are called and saved, not as individuals, but as God’s people, looking at how the laity are involved in parish life and how parishes collaborate together. The Sunday readings this liturgical year A are from the Gospel of Matthew.
