The Antiphons are celebrated from 17 – 23rd December. For more about them please take a look at the “3 minute Theology” clip from the Diocese of Nashville below.
This year we encourage communities to participate in a very special way of celebrating and reflecting on the last days of Advent using the O Antiphons.
It would be a lovely gesture if all our Christian communities could join in, reflecting on and praying with these beautiful O Antiphons and have them as a visible symbol of the Hope we share as one unified Christian community.
A copy is available to download for you and/or your family to colour and cut out and perhaps you can put them in your windows or hang them on your tree (you’ll need to add a piece of ribbon!)
A parishioner from St Wilfrid’s Garston, Liverpool (thank you Debbie!) has also pre-coloured a set that can be cut out and used directly. You may wish to write a prayer on the back or the name of a loved one.
