In preparation for the beginning of Advent Fr Adrian Graffy, parish priest of Gidea Park and Scripture scholar, will be giving a talk on ‘The Prophet Isaiah’ at 7 pm on Wednesday 29 November in the parish hall at the Catholic Church of Christ the Eternal High Priest, Gidea Park, RM2 6DH.

Fr Adrian says: “Words of the prophet Isaiah dominate the Liturgy during Advent. This is an opportunity to explore the book attributed to this prophet, and especially to consider the words which have been seen as fulfilled in the coming of Jesus.”

The talk is free and is in person, and it will also be live-streamed on No booking necessary. A recording of the talk will be made available subsequently on the same website.

Fr Adrian Graffy is parish priest of Gidea Park, a Scripture scholar, and since 2014 a member of Pope Francis’ Pontifical Biblical Commission. All are warmly invited to engage in this preparation for the Season of Advent.
