Christmas Message 2014
Once again we are celebrating Christmas to honor Jesus’ birth. He came on earth to reveal his message of joy, peace and hope. I pray that you will have a joyful Christmas rooted in deep faith and strong enough to survive the disappointments and sorrows in our lives. I pray that you will have a peaceful Christmas which the world needs; peace that our hearts are always longing for; peace that we share with one another so that forgiveness, kindness and charity will reign in our families; peace that only Christ can give.
Finally I pray that you will have a hopeful Christmas. Amidst the trials, disappointments, and prospects of the future that are uncertain and depressing let us not lose our capacity to hope. The birthday of Christ will renew hope in our hearts.
Thank you so much for your unwavering support to me, to my two associates, Fr. Jun & Fr. Ajin, our Parish and school, and for lifting us in your thoughts and prayers.
I wish you all a most Blessed Christmas and may its peace and joy be with you throughout the coming year.
Sincerely yours in Christ.
Rev. Amador M. Abundo, Pastor.
