December 29, 2017
Dear brothers and sisters of St. Christopher’s,
May the peace and joy of this Christmastide be with you and your family! As we come to the end of 2017, let’s give thanks for what God has given us. Do you find your spiritual life has grown?
This Sunday, Dec 31, in our services, we will remember parishioners who passed away this year. On one hand we thank God for their lives. On the other hand, we pray for their family members as they adjust a new beginning.
In 2017, our theme is “Discerning Our Mission, Serving the Lord”. After a number of exercises in the past year, we will gather on next Sat. Jan 6 at Holy Trinity Church to discover what God wants our church to be. Please register and join our Visioning Day:
