Christmas Schedule 2017

My Friends,

Christmas is filled with expectations. Many look forward to brightly-wrapped presents, festive decorations, and holiday meals. For disciples of Jesus, the gifts, trimmings and celebrations of the Advent and Christmas seasons call to mind the unending grace of Emmanuel, god with us in the mystery of the Incarnation.

What do you look forward to most this holiday season? We look forward to celebrating the amazing gift of Jesus Christ with you and our whole parish family! Together, we wait in joyful hope for the coming of the Redeemer, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, who will come again. We join with Mary and Elizabeth in rejoicing with the Father through reaching out to others. We follow the shepherds and magi in honoring the Son as we gather for mass. We stand alongside Joseph in listening for the Holy Spirit as we contemplate being entrusted with gifts for the good of the world. May this time of expectation draw us to God who waits to hold us closely in love.

May the fullness of God bless you and keep you this Christmas and in the year to come.

Msgr. Joe Rosie

Fr. Carlo Calisin, Fr. Miguel Valle and your Parish Staff
