Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!
Our sincere thanks to all who contributed to our parish celebration of Christmas this year. The flowers and crib are beautiful, many thanks to flower arrangers and also to the cleaners, altar servers, musicians, readers, Eucharistic ministers and stewards. All of our Christmas Masses on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were very well attended and all who came, especially our visitors, appreciated the welcome they received and the well planned liturgy. Father Frank Ryan, Father Frank Gormley and Father Dennis Connor wish you all a very blessed and peaceful 2018.
New Year Prayer:
God, thank you for a new year. May everyone in our family be willing to begin anew with a clean slate. We know that you are always ready to forgive us. Help us to be willing to forgive ourselves and to forgive one another. As we begin a new year, remind us of our truest values and our deepest desires. Help us to live in the goodness that comes from doing what you want us to do. Help us to put aside anxiety about the future and the past, so that we might live in peace with you now, one day at a time, Amen.
