Advent on the Gate in Cloyne Union of Parishes, County Cork

During the CoronaVirus Pandemic, in general, and in the Advent run-up to Christmas, in particular, parishes and chaplaincies in Cork, Cloyne and Ross, as elsewhere, are trying to find innovative and imaginative ways to celebrate and observe the Church’s seasons

The Church of Ireland Community in Cloyne Union have been marking Advent in a new way this year. They have called it Advent on the Gate. As the churches were closed for public worship as Advent began, they wanted to mark the season and stay connected with the community.

Throughout Advent one poster and prayer has been placed on the gates of each of the churches in the union of parishes – Corkbeg, East Ferry and Midleton as well as on the gate of Cloyne Cathedral.

Along with this daily physical poster and prayer, there is also a post on their Facebook page HERE . If you would like to see these on your own FB feed, then please like the page and the daily posts.

Week one featured The Annunciation

The Sermon on the Mount

And The Magnificat

In Week 2

John the Baptist was recognised as a herald of the Gospel

And as the one who prepares us for the light of the coming Christ

The parish invites you to join them as they rogress through the rest of Advent in weeks 3 and 4 and here are a few sneak previews……
