Christ is Born! Glorify Him! Христос народився! Славіте Його! Всім людям доброї волї бажаємo щасливих та Благословених Свят. May Jesus, born in a stable, open our minds and hearts to the heavens above, our arms and hands to those in need around us, and our souls to his peace dwelling within us. I pray you have a holy, healthy and happy New Year! Fr. Terry/o.

️ What’s the most unfinished story of your life in 2020? What are the loose ends that you need to tie up? What fear, hesitation or just plain laziness has kept you from completing something you wanted and needed to do? Are others waiting for you to bring this in? Are you waiting for others to help you? Are you slow to accept others' help? What still needs to be done - and how and when will you get to that in the year ahead? What peace, what happiness might be yours were you to bring some closure to this unfinished story? Where is God in this unfinished story of yours? Name one way in which you might invite the Lord to have a bigger place in your personal story in the New Year. ️ 37 DONATIONS have been received in memory of +Myron Washchyshyn.
