ADVENT FAMILY PRAYER  –  God of Love, your son, Jesus, is our greatest gift to us.  He is our sign of love.  As we light our Advent candle may it remind us of the love you have for us.  Help us to walk in love during the weeks of Advent, as we wait and prepare for his coming.  We pray in the name of Jesus, our Saviour.  Amen.

CHRISTMAS REMEMBRANCE TREE  –  We will have the Christmas Remembrance tree in Kilcurry Church at Christmas time.  Please take a candle from the box and place it in the basket provided.  The candles will be placed on the tree for you and lit on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day masses in remembrance of your loved ones.  You can leave a small donation if you wish in the candelabra.
