Advent Prayer Service 2021

As we journey in faith through this Advent season, we pause to reflect on the message of Pope Francis Encyclical ‘Laudato Si’ and join with some of AMRI staff in our Advent prayer. The prayer service was kindly written by Sr Pat Donovan and the music was provided by Sr Marie Dunne.
