On Sunday 26th November, an afternoon of prayer will take place in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh to celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. On this special day, we recognise and honour Christ as ruler and universal shepherd. The true King sits on a heavenly throne, never away nor above nor apart, with wisdom and mercy and constant compassion and He lives in the love that lives in our hearts.
The afternoon will take place from 2pm – 5pm, concluding with Benediction at 5pm. There will be prayers and reflections led on each of the hours and there will be quiet time, to allow people the opportunity to come before the Lord, to give thanks for all the graces and blessings of life and especially, the many blessings of the past year!
An evening of Advent Meditation in music, prose, poetry and prayer in The Market Place Theatre on Tuesday 5 December at 7.30pm. The guest speaker will be Padraig O’Tuama, the leader of the Corrymeela Community. Padraig is a poet and a theologian and he has worked with groups for many years across the world. He lectures, leads retreats and he writes both poetry and prose. It’s said that he’s “an extraordinary person, whose influence extends quietly and gracefully across the world. His poetry bears these same qualities and brings him close. It is a gift to us all”. We will be joined on the evening by the Chamber Choir from St Catherine’s College, Armagh. It promises to be a very special evening as we take time to reflect on Advent as being a time to prepare for Christ’s coming and all are welcome to join.
