Prepare for the Birth of Christ



Dear People of St. Patrick:
The Gospel of John used at Christmas Mass gives us a message that we renew this Christmas 2014.
“He gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, and he made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only son, full of grace and truth.”
Christmas reminds us of the gift that God the Father gave to us, his only son, Jesus Christ. Christ came to be one of us, He lived amongst us and after his resurrection, He still dwells with us in the church and especially in the Eucharist.
He gave us the Church, the Seven Sacraments, the four Gospels and most of all, He taught us to know, love and serve God with all our hearts.
Perhaps this Christmas, we need to remember that with all the hate and violence, selfishness and complete disregard for God’s plan and the joy that comes to us from following God’s plan, we are to seek peace on earth and peace without God will never happen.
Let us take the gift God sent us and grow in our relationship with God and really come to know and understand him.
Some things to help with this is, go to Mass, especially the 9-days of Simbang Gabi and go to Reconciliation. Come and spend

some time in prayer and reflection on Wednesday December 17, at 7:00pm
Please invite family and friends and others to come to Mass with you for Christmas.
God gave us a gift of his son, let us give back by being generous in our Sacrificial Offerings to the Lord on Christmas and to make our financial gift from the heart to help our Parish.
May the joy of the Christ child bring joy and happiness to you and your family and especially to our world.
A very Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!



God Bless,
Fr. Larry Young
Pastor
