From the Desk of Fr. Marty
This year has been filled with many changes, worries, and fears but we, as Catholics, know that regardless of all the stresses and scares, our real gift is HOPE in the Lord.
We have been given a gift of time at home, a gift of focusing on our families, a gift of finding out what means the most to us throughout this pandemic. So take these gifts and combine them with the HOPE we have in the goodness and grace of our Lord, Jesus, who comes to u
s in a special way this year in the celebration of His Nativity. God chose to show us His amazing and unfathomable love by coming to us in our humanity to once and for all, to break the chains of death caused by sin. Because of the “Yes” of our Blessed Virgin Mary and the cooperation of St. Joseph, this humble, poor baby gives all of us the hope of salvation and of being reunited with God in heaven in perfect peace and happiness, a true and lasting gift.
I wish all of you a blessed and Holy Christmas celebration. I pray that you and your families will be healthy and safe. Most of all, I pray that you will see the “real gift” in Christmas of the message of hope in God’s love and care for you.
May God Bless you, Fr. Marty
