Special thanks to all our Parish volunteers. Without your help we could not function. We appreciate you all and thank
you again for your commitment.
We pray that you will have a peaceful and safe Christmas and New Year. We pray that soon we will all be back to
normal again enjoying each other’s friendship and company. We continue to pray for the scientists who are working on
a vaccination to defeat this awful plague. May Christ be present to all of you in a special way at this time.
