It was two nights before Christmas, our hearts are prepared,

The wound between God and man soon to be repaired.

Mary said “Yes,” the world soon to behold

One whose full glory could never be told!

An angel chorus appears and sings,

Their anthem of “Glory” in our heart and churches rings.

We, too, alight in faith and joy

Here to praise the baby Boy.

Behold!   Our Savior comes, a child tender.

To this great king your praises render.

 

I do wish all of you a merry Christmas.  Jesus is the reason for the season.  He is love incarnate found in the manger.  May love also abound in your homes this Christmas.

See inside for the Mass schedule for our region.  The Christmas Eve Masses are always very full.  It is a joy.  While your usual parking spot or usual seat might be taken, do not fret.  We want to be Christ for each other so, too, in welcoming those who are with us to honor the child Jesus.

January 1 is the feast day for Mary, Mother of God.  See inside for the Mass schedule.

Prepare your heart to receive Emmanuel – God with us.
