Calendar

Fr. Greg's Notes

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!

The Church's calendar begins on the first Sunday of Advent, which means we're starting a whole new Church year, and we're also starting to get ready for the feast of Christmas.  A good beginning to both of these could go a long way toward a good Christmas and a good year.  Christmas seems a bit distant right now, but within a week or so it'll seem just around the corner.  And things will become busy, even hectic.

Advent is meant to help us keep our perspective.  The point is to focus on what is important so that we can enjoy the feast of Christmas even more.  Advent is not meant to take the fun out of this season.  It's a wonderful time of year, one that is dear to us, rich in memories and customs, with sights, sounds , smells all round, that gladden one's spirit.  (The Little Blue Book; First Sunday of Advent)

Please spend at least 6 minutes a day with God this Advent season; Christmas will be so much more meaningful!

 

Peace,
Fr. Greg Esty
