The Christmas season is upon us. What a joy as we celebrate our faith! We are truly blessed as God comes to us. May we always know his presence with us and be able to share the goodness of God that is within us. May we show this in all of our relationships as we exercise patience, understanding, compassion and forgiveness in a special way during this holy season.
I thank you for being a part of our faith community here at Our Lady of Refuge. I enjoy being your pastor and I appreciate the support you give in many ways so that our parish fulfills its mission. This has been a challenging year given the pandemic, but we have our faith to guide us through. It is hard to measure growth in faith. However, this is our most important purpose. I pray that all that we do at the parish is a source of inspiration for our faith life.
We thank God for the blessings we have received. As we celebrate Christmas may we be very aware of all the blessings He sends our way, and may the New Year bring us many more blessings and graces to our parish and to our families. Merry Christmas!
Msgr. Gerald McEnhill
