Below is a wonderful Prayer Resource from Elphin and Clonfert Diocese of prayer supports for Mass when at home. This is a very helpful resource for those who wish to continue to join Mass celebrations via the Parish Webcam.
Below is a suggestion of some music for Advent time. You will hear these played at Mass. Additional music will be added over the time of Advent.
A Prayer for Lighting the Advent Wreath
Blessed are you, O Lord our God, king of the universe.
You sent your Son to be the Light of the world and to
spread his light of love to all.
As we light the candles of this wreath
May its growing brightness remind us of the approaching
nearness of your Son
So that the day of His coming may find us prepared and
filled with joy.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
