The Fathers would like to wish all of you a very blessed and merry Christmas and to thank everyone who helped to prepare for this beautiful season of Christmastide, by cleaning, decorating, practicing extra music, etc. May God reward you! Thank you also to all who give generously of their time and resources throughout the year in so many different ways. We are so grateful to the altar servers and their families, choir members, those who clean the church, arrange flowers, provide groceries for the priests, and volunteer in other ways.
