Christmas Greetings!

A little piece of Christmas is good for the soul! It is a busy season but no more so for us, than for Mary and Joseph who while awaiting the birth of their child were forced to undertake a long journey to Bethlehem.  Part of the beauty of the Christmas story is in the glimpses of the moments when there was a pause. The time when Mary and Joseph finally were able to stop and rest in the stable, the rising of the great star, the moment that the shepherd heard the angels message and then went to see the baby, and the visit of the Magi each represent a little piece of Christmas.  On behalf of the faculty and staff, Sr. Brid and I wish that each of you will find the time to pause and enjoy the quiet moments that bring great joy. It is in those moments that we truly know God is with us.

We pray for you especially during this season and ask that you will be surrounded by God’s love, mindful of his mercy and at peace.

Wishing each of you a most joyous Christmas,

Barbara and Sr. Brid
