Fall 2017

As we move toward Christ the King Sunday, which marks the end of the Christian liturgical year, the focus of Jesus’ teachings shifts to the end of history. Jesus promises that he will one day return to judge the living and the dead.  He encourages us to be always ready and willing to enter the fullness of the Kingdom of God.  We are called to watch, to pray, and to live for God eagerly.

ADVENT 2017

Moving Toward the Manger

Advent is a special season in the Christian Year.  Advent means “coming”.  Jesus Christ came  into the word to show divine love, to forgive, and to restore hope for the future.  So, our Advent theme this year is “Moving Toward the Manger” where Christ was born.   Because Christ has united himself with us, we can pray for God to make his presence known among us, to comfort us in trouble, and to bring hope to all people.
