Bambinelli Sunday. “A Beautiful Advent Tradition”. This Sunday 16th December is “Bambinelli Sunday.” Many homes in our parishes still give a central
place to the crib among their Christmas decorations. This Saturday and Sunday we invite you to bring the Baby Jesus from your home crib to the masses in the Imeall Boirne Parishes for blessing by Fr. Damien and Fr. Pat . When we pray at our family crib this Christmas, may we be thankful for the gift of each other.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
