I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our Parishioners a very happy and peaceful Christmas and I pray that 2020 will be a year filled with opportunity for you all.
During the past twelve months we have had many happy times in our parish, new births, children receiving the sacraments, weddings, momentous anniversaries of marriage and many other happy times. We give thanks to God for the ability to celebrate and for the gift of family and friends.
The past year has also brought great challenges for many as they have laid a loved one to rest, as relationships broke down, as serious illness visited your home, as your family members moved to far away shores, these examples and many others can make celebrating Christmas seem a little difficult. Despite the rushing about that comes with Christmas please be assured that you and your cares are held in our minds and in our prayers at this very sacred time.
May the joy of the birth of Christ fill your hearts and your homes with hope, happiness and the knowledge of Gods infinite love for each one of us.
May you have a very Happy and Blessed Christmas. Fr. John
