Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

It is hard to believe that we are only a few weeks away from the end of this liturgical year and then enter in to the season of Advent! Of course if you walk through the stores, it would seem that Christmas is already here!! As we approach the end of the liturgical year, the Church starts to focus our Readings on heaven and the end of time. Our Old Testament reading from the Second Book of Maccabees relates the story of a mother who had seven sons. They were being threatened with torture and death for refusing to break Jewish laws. They all chose death rather than risk offending God and thus losing eternal life in heaven! Their mother encouraged them to stay strong and die for their faith knowing that they would be together for all eternity in heaven even as their time together here on earth would soon end. This display of faith and courage is amazing! How strong is our faith in God and eternal life? Would we be willing to give up our life here on earth and gain eternal life rather than offend God and lose eternal life in heaven just so that we could continue our life on earth for a while longer? As we journey through these last few weeks of this liturgical year, the Church will continue to address this question. How will we respond?

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!

Fr. Steve
