Dear Parish Community,
For so many of us, the last four weeks have been a frenzy of activity - shopping for the perfect gift, writing cards, decorating the tree, baking Christmas goodies, etc. Have we taken
time to prepare a spiritual gift for the babe in the manger? It is not too late! ext Thursday when we celebrate the birth of Jesus and the most beautiful season of Christmas; we will sing sweet carols about the Babe of Bethlehem and tell him in song to "sleep in heavenly peace." Christmas is a beautiful time of the year when we celebrate family and friends. It is a time of warmth and peace. It is a time when we put lights on our homes and Christmas trees to remind us that Jesus is the Light of the World. It is a time for miracles and for giving. We all have something to give. This week let us ask our heavenly mother to intercede with her son to help us to prepare for the birth of our savior and when we wish each other a Merry Christmas, let us remember that God has given us the greatest of gifts in his overwhelming love for us, the birth of His son, Jesus.
On behalf of Fr. Nalaka, Fr. Joseph, Sr. Charles, Deacon Bob, Deacon Candidate Vinny and members of the parish and school staff, I want to wish you and your families a Blessed and Merry Christmas. As we welcome the Prince of Peace into our hearts and homes during this blessed Christmas season. I pray that the peace and love of the Christ child fill your hearts this day and every day.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Fr. Anthony Sirianni
