The translation of the Bible that we hear at Mass is changing this Advent.

This day of prayer, study and discussion is a good opportunity to reflect together on what a gift the word of God is for the Church.

So if you want to learn more about the Bible and discover and share practical tips to treasure it even more - this is the day for you. Register for this free event here.

This event will begin with Mass at 10:00am in St Margaret's Chapel at The Gillis Centre.

'Then there will be prayer, study and discussion, featuring talks from invited speakers and a panel of testimonies from lay people from across the Archdiocese.'

We will conclude with Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction in the Chapel at 2:30pm.

A light lunch will be provided and there is free parking onsite.
