Hello! Today the church celebrates the feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to look at the gift of family. What does it mean to belong to a family? Jesus, Mary and Joseph model what family life ought to look like, although, at times because of our human condition we fall short of that ideal. Let us promise to pray for each other, especially for those families who might be struggling with various life issues.
We, here, at St. Albert’s, are also a family and I’m so grateful for the ways in which each of you share and participate in this wonderful relationship! As we look to the New Year I’d like to thank the parish staff for their continued service to our faith community. I’m also grateful for the men and women who serve on the Parish and Finance councils and those who volunteer their time, talent and treasure on various parish committees! Finally, for those who help in any kind of parish
ministry; thank you!
As we prepare to celebrate 2015 know that you all are in my prayers and I ask for yours!
Happy New Year!
