Happy Second Sunday of Advent!

As we are approaching the end of 2021 we give thanks to the wonderful events we have enjoyed recently—thanks to Laetitia Puthenpadath and Kieran Fenn fms.
We will have two final events this year:
I will give a presentation on Nativity Scenes, and we will have a special presentation/discussion on Joy at Mass with Prof Thomas O’Loughlin and Kieran Fenn fms.
Please remember to check out the website of Titipounamu Study & Joy. You will find information and further resources that you can access any time online. See:
There are a range of video clips, radio programmes, reflections available. You can also follow us YouTube and Facebook.
If you would like to listen to Muffin Talk online, you can do so anytime. My most recent interview has been with Rod Oram who reflected on his experience at COP26.
