Advent Procession

All are welcome to this special service to mark the beginning of the season of Advent. As we move from darkness to light, symbolising the imminent arrival of Jesus Christ, the world's Redeemer, we hear readings and carols sung by the Cathedral Choir.

Advent is a penitential season, a time for reflection as we prepare for the birth of Jesus at Christmas. We acknowledge the wrongs of the world and our own failings, praying that, as Jesus' arrival two thousand years ago brought us the promise of forgiveness, so today we might gain salvation.
