This page contains the eight Advent Reflections from SMA Fathers and an OLA Sister. These were written and recorded for Advent in 2020 a year that due to the pandemic, made us all change the way we live and the way we relate with each other.  The pandemic is not yet over and it looks as though it will be with us for some time yet.

Below are the personal reflections of eight people – what Advent means to each of them and how it offers hope. The Reflections can be accessed and viewed  by clicking the link beside the  names of those who composed and delivered them.
