Fourth Sunday of Advent

Around the Ambo, four candles are now lit on the Cathedral's Advent wreath. Advent enters its final week, which will be marked by preparations - both spiritual and practical - for the great feast of Christmas. On Tuesday evening there will be a reconciliation service (with individual confession) at 7pm, and each day there will be sung Vespers. As always, blog readers will get a sneak look at behind-the-scenes preparations for the feast as the week progresses. These images were taken before Vespers this evening; if you're in the area, join us for Vespers on Sunday (4:40pm), Monday-Wednesday (5:30pm) and first Vespers of Christmas on Thursday at 4pm. All welcome!
