To each of you and your families, I wish you a Merry Christmas on behalf of Fr. Peter, Fr. Joey, our IHM Sisters, and the faculty and staff St. James Church and School! Our prayer for you: May the Peace, Joy, and Love of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, fill your hearts and homes this Christmas Season!
Christmas begins today! For 8 days we celebrate Christmas Day. This is called the Octave (8) of Christmas. Our Christmas Season begins on December 25th and ends on January 9th (the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord). Let’s celebrate this season and keep up our Christmas decorations until then. Keep the tree up and decorated. Keep the lights decorating your house up. Continue to think about our Almighty God becoming man and dwelling with us!
Many blessings upon you and your families!
~ Fr. Daniel Firmin
