Advent and Christmas 2023
Christmas is the time of year when people all over the world find themselves traveling home to spend the season with family and friends. Enjoying time with loved ones is no doubt one of the blessings of the holidays, but remember that the Lord is anxiously anticipating your presence as well.
We invite you to take part in our Christmas traditions, this season celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May you find yourselves welcome in our parish home.
Your Christmas gift to your Church - whether it be of your poverty or of your prosperity - let it symbolize your appreciation of all the gifts Our Lord and Savior has given you.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Michael Lavan
Pastor and Pastoral Staff
