A kind invitation has been extended to us from the priest and our friends at Our Lady & St Bridget's chapel in West Calder to join with them and participate in an Advent Mass taking place on Wednesday 15th December at 7pm.

Nanda will give the reflection at this service.

This Rorate Mass is held almost in darkness with only candles providing the light. The lack of light symbolises that of the peoples of the Old Testament waiting in darkness for the Messiah and is the congregation's way of reliving the first meaning of Advent and preparing for Christmas with a renewed sense of expectancy and joy.

Those attending are encouraged to take along a torch or electric lantern with them as the church will be quite dark.
