Fourth Sunday of Advent 23-24 December 2017
Dear Parishioners and Visitors,
Greetings of peace and joy at Christmas.
The Year 2017 has almost come to an end and Christmas is with us once again. For many of us it means a lot of celebrating and the exchanging of gifts. I hope and pray that you all have had a good year and are ready to celebrate Christmas with your loved ones.
For many, Christmas is a time when we experience friendship, family and love, but for some Christmas is a time when they experience loneliness, isolation and depression, because they have no one to be with and to celebrate with. I invite you to keep these people in your prayers. I hope none of you have this feeling of loneliness during the Christmas season no matter what you do and wherever you travel. Even though all my family members are far away in Vietnam I am blessed to be in a Parish where I always feel very much at home and with friends who I consider my spiritual family.
