Dear St. Mary’s family,
The day is quickly approaching…in a couple of days we will celebrate the coming of the Divine into our world in the form of Jesus. As we face longer days and more light, we are invited to consciously invite Jesus to walk with us into a new year. We have no idea what lies ahead but we do know that we will not walk alone. So keep your eyes and ears open for the companion who came to show you and me the way of LOVE.
Last minute decorating? On the parking lot dividers there are fresh-cut Leyland cypress (cedar) branches for the taking. Help yourself! (Thanks Harry!)
