12/10/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. Today is the second Sunday of Advent. Remember that the Advent season is a season of penance, a time for us to repent and turn more to preparing ourselves spiritually for the Birth of the child Jesus. It will be easy for us to get lost in the worldly preparations for Christmas as we run from store to store to get the bargains as we shop for the right present for that special person. We will be going to different Christmas parties, and will probably eat and drink more than we should.......

12/03/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. When a couple gets the news that a baby is on the way, their hearts are filled with joy. For nine months, the mother must take special care of her body for whatever she eats or drink will have an effect on the baby. There is also a lot of time spent on making the physical preparations for the new arrival. As the birth date gets nearer, the excitement grows. It was the same for Mary and Joseph when Mary was pregnant with Jesus. But in the last days of her pregnancy,......

11/26/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I hope that all of you had a great Thanksgiving. I would wager that most of you ate more than you wanted. It was just too much to say no to that extra helping of turkey and dressing or maybe that extra piece of pecan pie. You also probably ate left over in the evening. There is still time to go on a crash diet to get ready for all the Christmas parties! I hope that Thanksgiving was a wonderful time for you to visit with members of you family that you have not seen for some time. Thanksgiving is also......

10/29/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. From the reports that I am getting here at the hospital, it seems as if the carnival was a great success. I want to thank all of you who worked so hard to make the annual Halloween Carnival the success that it was. It was truly an example of what can happen when the entire parish community comes together to work for the good of the parish. The school’s PTO officers and the members of the Halloween Carnival committee did a great job in putting it all together and making sure that......
