As we prepare to celebrate the beautiful feast of the birth of the Lord Jesus, I unfortunately will not be celebrating my ‘first’ Christmas as pastor of Saint John’s with you. Due to my family’s schedule, they picked me up to take me to New York before the weekend and I anticipate returning to the rectory later this week.
Although I will miss my first Christmas as pastor of Saint John’s, I will look forward to many Christmases to come with you. May the birth of the Lord Jesus radiate His peace into each of your homes through the New Year! Merry Christmas!
