My Dear & Loving Parishioners
With deep joy and gratitude, I extend to you my prayerful
best wishes for a holy and blessed Christmas.
Whatever it is that our hearts and souls desire,
Our ultimate desire is Jesus Himself, for this reason, we
are filled with joy and consolation at Christmas to know
that all that we hoped for has been fulfilled in the person
of Child Jesus.
In the midst of all our current challenges and concerns,
the love of God the Father, is made manifest to us in the
wonderful gift of His Son, Jesus.
With the angels in Bethlehem, our faith moves us to sing:
“Glory to God in the highest and peace to His people on
earth!” We recognize that true peace on earth flows from
our recognition and praise of God in our lives.
May our Lord Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem,
Bless you, your families and loved ones
At this blessed time of hope and grace.
May the intercession of Holy Family always be with you
and Saint John Bosco our Patron Saint of the Parish
watch over you.
Merry Christmas and a Blessed 2015!
Father Jacob
