Come along to St George’s this Sunday (December 2nd) at 5pm and join in the anticipation of Advent as we process in candlelight, sing plainsong antiphons, seasonal hymns, anthems and motets. This service is a favourite of the boys and men of the parish choir, a very special start to the journey of expectation and preparation which leads to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.

Our Requiem Eucharist and Commemoration of the Faithful Departed will take place on the evening of All Saints Day, Thursday 1st November at 8pm. The service will be sung by the Chamber Choir.
Christ is the morning star who when the night of this world is past brings to his saints the promise of the light of life and opens everlasting day
