This is our season of prayerful hope and our time of remembering.

Our solemn recall of Jesus’ birth during this time invites us to remember our sisters and brothers who we lost this past year.

For Christmas this year, we will again add doves to our Christmas trees. Each dove is a symbol of our prayer, our hope, and our remembering.

We would like each dove to bear the name of a person who died this past year. We will include one dove for those who have no one to remember them.

We invite you to send name(s) that you would like included on our tree this year.

Please submit names by December 20st.

May the peace Christ, whose birth we recall, be with you.

Fr. Tom, ofm
