The seasons of the Church’s year are as beautiful and colourful as the changing seasons of the created world! Through the turning of the year, we celebrate the mystery of our Salvation, as we are drawn deeper into the saving work of Christ – from his birth in Bethlehem to his death on the cross and his glorious Resurrection and Ascension into heaven.
