Let us pray for your needs and intentions – you and members of your family, both living and deceased, will be remembered in the Novenas celebrated for your intentions and in the masses offered each day for you.
May we remember you and your intentions in our Christmas Novena of Masses? Send your intentions today!
Often throughout this challenging year, I’ve found myself clinging to the words of Matthew 1:23. They comfort me and remind me that no matter what, God is with us.
He is with us in the joyful moments, and in the darkest of moments. He is with you, friend!
There is no greater news than that, no greater gift than the gift of His presence. And that’s a gift worth sharing, especially at Christmas.
This most holy season is a time of giving to those we love most, a time to share the gift of our faith, and the news that God is with us. This year, sharing our faith is more important than ever. It draws us near to our loved ones, even when we may be miles apart.
One way you can draw close to your loved ones is through our Christmas Enrollment Cards. Let these cards be reassurance to those you love that you are with them in spirit, not only for the coming Christmas season, but in every day of the new year.
The enrollment joins you and those you care for in a sacred circle of prayer and petition to God. It unites you and your loved ones with all our Franciscan family. It offers you a chance to connect your faith with others around the world amid these trying times of the coronavirus pandemic.
We would be honored to remember you and your intentions in our Christmas Novena of Masses from December 16 to Christmas Eve and, December 25 to January 2.
Kindly send your intentions to me now to be included in the Novena and join us in prayer and petition for all our needs and hopes. Please also remember our missionaries among your intentions and if you are able, include an offering of any amount to assist their work here in the United States and in our missions in Central America.
May our Savior bless and keep you as we come together in peace and love to celebrate His divine birth.
With prayers for a blessed Christmas,
Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
