Happy New Year and every blessing on all your homes.

In 2023 may we all act justly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with our God.  As a new year begins, we would like to take an opportunity to acknowledge and thank so many people who have contributed to life of the parish. They do so very often in a quiet, effective way without drawing attention to themselves or their roles.
