The 'O' Antiphons

The 'O' Antiphons

In the Church’s Liturgy of the Hours, Evening prayer always includes Mary’s prayer, the Magnificat. Each day the Magnificat is preceded by a short verse, or antiphon that links the prayer to the feast of the day or the season of the year. In the last seven days of Advent (December 17-23rd), the antiphons before the Magnificat are very special.

3rd of Advent (Bulletin)

We're sorry, but Fr Sullivan was unable to provide us with his thoughts for this week. Please see enclosed for the weekly parish bulletin.
