Dear Parishioners,
With gratitude and praise, we hasten to the manger of Bethlehem.  Like shepherds and magi, we gaze in awe, and open our hearts.

At Bethlehem, there is hope, a Child's destiny to redeem all!  There is peace, angels' songs of peace for all humanity!  There is love, God's unbounded love for us !

At Bethlehem, there is Jesus, Mary and Joseph the First Family of the Church.  At this time, we confide to them all the ponderings of our hearts, our joys and sorrows, our contentment and anxieties, our yearnings and hopes.  We ask them to bear our hearts and prayers to the ears and heart of God.

A blessed and hppy Christmas and New Year!  May God bless our world with His peace, your families with his hope and your hearts with His love!
