HOW MANY PEOPLE DOES IT TAKE
TO ‘GO, TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN’?
… it takes a village of incredible
volunteers to bring to life the story of
our Savior’ birth.
Over 480 faithful parishioners brought our Savior’s
story to life over the weekend to help us prepare to
celebrate Christ’s birth anew. What a beautiful night
to experience Bethlehem as it might have been during
the time of Mary and Joseph’s journey to the stable.
A huge thank you goes out to all actors, set designers,
set up crews, clean-up crews, coordinators, organizers
and, of course, the many baby ‘Jesus’ and their holy
families who gave this gift to our parish and the greater
community.

PASTOR’S REFLECTION
Christmas
December 25, 2016
Dear Friends,
Merry Christmas!
Today we celebrate our hope; our new life. Have we
opened our hearts to receive this gift from the Lord?
Only as we open our hearts to Christ can we remain in
God’s Peace...the peace that the world does not know.
Take time to refresh the life of the Spirit that has been
given you. Then witness your faith like disciples and
believers throughout the ages. Be assured of my
prayers for you and for your dear ones, particularly
during this Christmas Season.. May the good Lord
bless you with wisdom and peace. Please pray for me.
In Christ,
Msgr. Pablo A. Navarro

REFLEXIÓN DEL PÁRROCO
NAVIDAD
25 DE DICIEMBRE DEL 2016
Queridos Amigos,
Feliz Navidad! Hoy celebramos nuestra esperanza;
nuestra nueva vida. ¿Hemos abierto nuestros corazones
para recibir este regalo del Señor? Solo abriendo nuestros
corazones a Jesús podemos mantenernos en Su paz...la
paz que el mundo no conoce.
Pasen unos minutos en oración de silencio. Pídanle a Dios
que les demuestre formas de responder a Su Palabra y a
Su Plan divino. Por favor oren por mi. Asegúrense que
los tengo a ustedes y a sus seres queridos en mis oraciones
diarias, especialmente durante esta santa temporada de
Navidad. Que Dios los bendiga.
En Cristo,
Mons. Pablo A. Navarro
