From the Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

May I take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a very blessed and joy filled Christmas. During these last days of Advent we remember Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem. It is an ancient custom to place a candle in the window of our homes to the light the way to the Manger. May these candles remind us of the Light of Christ who comes to bring peace and joy to our World.

“The Virgin shall be with child
and give birth to a Son,
and they shall call Him Emmanuel,”

Merry Christmas!

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas
