As we enter into the final week of Advent, I want to express my sincere hope that everyone in our cluster community has a wonderful Christmas holiday. Spend some time with family and eat some good food. Take some time to rest, because everyone needs that. The stress of this season can definitely take its toll on all of us even though this is a season of joy. I am looking forward to celebrating with everyone at Christmas this week. It a great joy for me to be here to celebrate this wonderful time with all of you.
I also want to thank everyone who participated in the various outreach programs at our parishes this season. You have all made it possible for so many people to experience the joy of this season who might not have found much joy in this time otherwise. I am very proud to see all that is done to reach out to the greater community around us. I’m praying for more of this in the coming year.
