Emmanuel – God with Us
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us….And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
May we wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a prayerful and peacful few days. We just ask you during your celebrations to keep in your thoughts and prayers all who are finding this time of year difficult; homelessness, hunger, loneliness, the victims of war, violence, and many other things that make life hard.
!!!!!!Have a wonderful celebration everyone!!!!!!!!!
Keep Christ in your hearts and houses.
