Merry Christmas

Posted by

The Christmas Day liturgies are over and we’ve had a great Christmas dinner at the friary. It’s been a long day. Tomorrow I’m off to visit with my family. I’ll be keeping a low profile… so probably not much on the blog. Down time is important!

I wish you all continued blessings during this holy season. Remember, Christmas has only just begun!Don’t let the marketing people steal the season. I’m still looking forward to the celebrations of Holy Family and of course, the Epiphany. Actually, our staff Christmas party for everyone here at St. Bonaventure will be on January 6th.  It takes a lot of pressure off the late Advent Season. This way we can enjoy Christmas all the more.

Ciao for now everyone.


  1. How true that Christmas has just begun. The Christmas Season in the Catholic Church is rich in feast days. In the days just following Christmas we have the feast of the first martyr, St. Stephen, on December 26, the feast of St. John, Apostle and Evangelist on December 27, the feast of the Holy Family and Holy Innocents on December 28. The feast of St. Thomas a’ Beckett is now optional on December 29, but it used to be standard.

    How well I remember going to Catholic services for the first time in the first year of my marriage 52 years ago and discovering the richness of the holy days of the Christmas Season.

    Praise the Lord for this Holy Season!

  2. Thank you to the kind parishioner who returned my driver’s license left at the church after midnight mass on Christmas eve. This gesture renewed my spirit of Christmas and faith that kindness is truly one of the greatest gifts one can give. Thank you once again and may you have a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year.
