"Christmas is the feast of trust and of hope. God is with us... He comes to abide with mankind, he chooses earth as his dwelling place to remain with people...in joy or in sorrow. Therefore, earth is no longer only ‘a valley of tears’; rather, it is the place where God himself has pitched his tent, it is the meeting place of God with humanity, of God’s solidarity with people.”
Pope Francis, 2014
Merry Christmas! May God’s blessing shine down upon you and your family as we celebrate the Birth of Christ. My best wishes and prayers remain with our Parishioners and friends in the New Year.
Father Al Concha
