Message and Bulletin for December 25 & 27, 2020 – Nativity of the Lord and the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

Dear Parishioners, 

Praised be Jesus Christ!

Please find attached the bulletin for the Nativity of the Lord and the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. I would ask that you please pay particular attention to the program for Christmas.

We enter Lockdown effective December 26, 2020, and consequently there have been many changes applied to the program. Please read the bulletin carefully for all these changes.

The church narthex will be open for prayer, daily, from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  You are invited to come and spend some time before the Lord. 

Mass will be available on Zoom and I invite you to join me. Please see the bulletin for Mass times.

As we come to the end of 2020, I would like to thank you for your patience, cooperation and support and I would also like to say I am sorry if I didn’t respond to your needs or if offended anyone – I ask for your forgiveness.

I wish each of you a blessed and joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021

Dear Parishioners & Visitors,

May this Christmas be more than just a season; may it become a way of life for us.
May the little Child whom we contemplate in the manger, watch over all the children of our parish and the entire world, as well as vulnerable and discarded persons. May all of us receive peace and consolation from the birth of the Saviour, and in the knowledge that we are loved by the one heavenly Father! May Jesus be really re-born in each one of us this Christmas. Merry Christmas!

With prayers,

Fr. Marian Gil OMI
