Merry Christmas! I pray that it is a day filled with peace and joy for your family and friends. This Monday, we have the Sacrament of Reconciliation after 8am Mass, 4pm to 5pm and 7pm within the context of Exposition in the Church. It is a great way to be fully prepared for the Feast of Christmas! Our Christmas Schedule will be on Christmas Eve 4pm in the Church and 4pm in the Parish Center, 6pm in the Church, 8pm in Spanish in the Church, 12 midnight in the Church. On Christmas Day we will have Masses at 9:30am, 11am, and 12:30pm in the Church. For those who are unable to join us physically, we will be streaming all the Christmas Eve and Christmas Masses from the Church. Have a blessed Christmas.
This year has seen a lot of changes to our parish staff. Marie Norwood, a long time secretary, and Chris Schmidt, maintenance man, both passed away this year. Kristen Guetter had come on to help as a secretary and outreach coordinator has left to take a different position elsewhere. About a month ago, Carol Oliveri informed me that she would like to retire as the parish secretary at the end of the year. We are in the process of hiring a new secretary who will start very soon. We pray and thank Carol for her years of service to the parish as a secretary. She will continue in various volunteer and ministerial roles as she has done for so many year. We pray that she has a nice and peaceful retirement!
For now, we continue our walk with the Lord.
