FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: When we were young, almost all of us always desired to have a white Christmas. Well, this year the aforementioned wish has been fulfilled for many kids. Even though children are enjoying the winter wonderland (and it indeed looks beautiful), for many of us, unfortunately, the snowstorm made it impossible to come to the Christmas Masses. In spite of these extraordinary circumstances, I wish all of you a very Blessed Christmas. May the joy of the birth of our Savior remain with you throughout the New Year. Speaking of the upcoming new year. On December 31, at the end of the Mass we will have a brief Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and we will offer prayers of thanksgiving to God for the past year and ask for His blessings for 2021. Finally, I would like to thank those who with their music and singing contributed to the Christmas liturgies and all those who have worked on decorating our Church for Christmas and lent their helping hand. God bless you all! Fr. Bona
