Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.” (Matthew 1:23)

The message of Christ’s birth at Christmas goes out to all the world bringing peace and hope to all people. Between Christ’s birth and his second coming, he is with us now: when two or more are gathered in his name; when we hear the word of God proclaimed; when we turn to him in prayer or to ask for absolution from our sins; when we receive his body and blood in holy Communion. Join us to celebrate this season of joy and hope for salvation!

The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (Jan. 1) is a holy day of obligation

Mary “received Jesus into herself and brought him forth for the whole human family.” (Pope Benedict XVI) Through her intercession, may we be strengthened in our mission to bring Christ to the world.
