Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

Happy New Year! Welcome to Advent when we begin a new Liturgical Year! This year, our Gospel readings will be mainly from Matthew’s Gospel. When we review our readings for this weekend we will find that our First Reading from Isaiah points to the first coming of the Messiah while the Second Reading and the Gospel point us toward the Second Coming of the Messiah. This is the twofold purpose of the season of Advent. One is to prepare us to joyfully celebrate the memorial of the Nativity of Jesus. The other is to prepare us for our encounter with Jesus at His Second Coming, whether that be at the end of time or at the moment of our death, whichever comes first! So are we ready to meet Jesus? Do we have things that we need to focus on and change about ourselves? The Season of Advent is a season of hope. Let us take time this Advent to sit back and reflect on God’s love, a love so overwhelming that He came to us as a baby born in to a very poor but faith-filled family. Let us take time to reflect on God’s desire for us to spend eternity with Him. Let us encounter the hope and peace that only our loving God can provide for us in a crazy mixed up world!

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!

Fr. Steve
