My Dear Parishioners,
I hope this Christmas letter finds you and your families well. Please take the time to read it. It contains very important information.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the Christmas Services in our parish. On Christmas Eve, December 24th, we will have two Masses, at 3:00pm and 5:00pm. On Christmas Day, December 25th, we will have three Masses similar to the Sunday schedule, at 8:30am, 10:00am and Noon.
This year because of the pandemic we did not take collections for the Bishop’s Appeal. I would like you to generously contribute and support this appeal. Some of you have already mailed your offerings to the Diocese. Thank you for your generosity! We will have a special collection for the Bishop’s Appeal this coming weekend (December 19th-20th) for those of you who would like to make their offerings then. We need to give our full support to our dear Bishop. Please make a little sacrifice and let each family give whatever they can afford.
I would like to invite all the CCD children and their parents to attend the Mass at 3:00pm on Christmas Eve, December 24th. You have an option to stay inside your cars if you do not want to come out. Please make every effort to attend the Christmas Mass. God will certainly bless you for that.
Know that I pray for you every day. May you have a wonderful Christmas by making Jesus the center of your celebration.
May God Bless You!
