A Christmas in Kells
This year’s Christmas Eve message was the pinnacle of our theme of Illumination that carried Cross of Hope form Advent through the season of Epiphany. Throughout Advent we steeped ourselves in the stunning art form of Manuscript Illumination, following in the footsteps of monks and scribes of our Christian heritage. Our 2015 Christmas Eve message was told through the lens of a fictional fiction shared throughout the entire service in 5 parts, following the life and spiritual struggle to of a perfectionistic monk known as Brother Padraic.
Throughout the story we see as spiritual transformation in him as he discovers in his own way the true light of hope found in the Christ Child and the Cross.
