I take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who has supported our Parish during the past year –those who prepare our Churches, participate in Church ceremonies and of course the financial support you so generously continue to give.
A very special welcome to family members who have come home for Christmas and we keep in our thoughts those who are unable to travel home this year. To our parishioners who have lost loved ones since last Christmas be assured you are never alone and God’s message to all of us at this time of year is a message of hope.
May the Child Jesus in the Crib fill your hearts and homes with peace and goodwill during this festive season. Fr. Fitzgerald
