My Dearest Parish Family,

God be with us always.


Now that we have entered the Ordinary Time in our Liturgical Calendar – let us take a moment to circle back to Christmas Season. One of my favorite Christmas songs has this as the last line of the refrain: “And May the Spirit of Christmas be always in our hearts.” Is this not a good advice to heed?

     If the Spirit of Christmas remains in our hearts – we will have generosity, joy, light, goodwill, peace and love each day of 2017. I am only naming a few of the graces we are given by the Season that has passed. We are halfway through the first month and indeed a lot has happened. We begin to get caught again with the daily grind of routine and the things we need to do.

     Let us not forget that God is “hiding in plain sight.” We must pray, ponder and stop time and again to love into the silence of our hearts where we encounter the Holy Spirit to guide, strengthen and comfort us. Whatever looming challenge or difficulty is waiting round the corner of each day, week or month that passes – we know that the “Emmanuel - God is with us.”


God bless and take care.

Love and prayers,

Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
