Light of the North – Advent 2023

Welcome to the Advent issue of the Light of the North, the magazine of the Diocese of Aberdeen.

Read about how St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Inverness, celebrated its 80th birthday (Page 4) while Eileen Grant in, Preparing for the Lord, reflects on scripture to reaffirm what Advent is really all about (Page 20). On page 22 Shelagh Noden discovers the origins of the traditional ‘Lessons and Carols Service’ and Lidia Konar takes a positive look at the future of Polish Catholicism in Scotland (Page 30). And don’t forget to read Bishop Hugh Gilbert’s Christmas letter on page 3.
