Feast of the Immaculate Conception
O Lady Immaculate Untier of Knots, Pray for us!
The immaculate Conception Advent service is rescheduled to Wednesday 13th December . At 7.30 p.m that evening there will be a service of hymns readings and prayers in honour of Mary Untier of Knots at Saint Mary of the Isle, Douglas, in which we will revisit some of the themes of our recent Novena. On the final day of the Novena we distributed small silk ribbons representing the new Hope that Mary gives us when we entrust our ‘knots’ into her care. There were insufficient ribbons for all who asked for them. In addition there may well be people who were not able to be present on that final day of the Novena, not least those who are housebound. More of these ribbons will be made available at our service of hymns and readings and prayers on 8th December. All welcome.

Confirmation for Older Teenagers and Adults
The Archbishop has stated that the minimum age for Confirmation throughout our diocese is now thirteen years. The next celebration of the rite of Confirmation for these young people will not take place until 2020. There are many adults and older teenagers who have missed out. YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO BE CONFIRMED. Our bishops have expressed a willingness to visit the Island to confirm older teenagers (16 plus), their parents and adults of any age who would like to be confirmed. If you fall into this category, please let the parish office have your details. A short period of preparation will be required
