Message from Father
 

 Hello everyone, Merry Christmas!

  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your families and loved ones. It is always such a great time of the year to spend time with those that we love and celebrate the fact that God is with us. He is not a God who is content to be apart from us, far removed from our concerns and our problems, but He is a God who comes to be like us and be with us in all things but sin. When we want to know who God is, we can take some time during this Christmas season ahead to pray and meditate before the manger scene. The one who created everything became a baby, held in the arms of His mother. We know how actions speak louder than words and what greater action can God do to say that He wants to be close to us and that He cares for us than the mystery that we celebrate during this time. We have a God who cares about us and is near to us.

  I hope you have a blessed Christmas with your family and loved ones and our prayers and thoughts certainly go out to those who are suffering or grieving during this time. May we continue to grow closer to the Lord, who came to bring light to the world, so that we can all the more radi-ate the presence of Christ to those that we meet in the year ahead, as a parish and as individuals.

God Bless all of you!
