I want to take this opportunity to wish every family joy and peace this Christmas.  Memories from the last year are different for each family. Some families welcomed beautiful little children in baptism. Some have celebrated weddings. Some got engaged. Some celebrated wedding anniversaries. Young people have graduated and began new schools and colleges. The past year has also been a time of bereavement for many families. People will miss loved ones at their Christmas dinner. I also want to thank you for your generous support in different collections during the year. May the Lord’s blessings be on all of you.                  Fr. Danny Broderick
