Christmas 2014


Dear Parishioner,

At His coming into the world, the first gift our Lord gives
to the world is His peace. He is the Prince of Peace, for the gift of peace is His alone to give. He does not give us a false sense of security as if no difficulties, trials or losses will ever find us. He does promise an inner tranquility that remains within us no matter what happens.

No one may take this peace from us as He promised. It is given to all who open their hearts to Him and consciously allow Him to fill their lives daily with His presence.


It is our prayer that all of you may know His peace this Christmas and throughout
the coming New Year.


Join us for Mass on Christmas and for the Sacrament of Penance.

May you know His presence and His peace!


In Jesus,


Father Michael
