Be Vigilant at All Times...11-28-2021Fr. Manasseh Iorchir, VC
Welcome to the First Sunday of Advent and the beginning of “Year C,” the new Liturgical Year. The season of Advent begins the Liturgical Year and has its origins in the early Church as a short period of intense preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of the Lord, also known as Christmas. Advent slowly came to be structured into four Sundays with proper readings and prayers. It is now a season of devout and joyful expectation as we recall the first humble coming of the Lord at Bethlehem about two millennia ago. We are invited to prepare our spiritual selves in joyful expectation of Christ’s promised second coming in glory at the termination of time. This is well-expressed in the Scripture readings, in the prayers, and in the two parts into which Advent is divided.READ MORE

Thanksgiving Week11-22-2021Fr. James Aboyi, V.C.
I wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving “in advance.” We thank God that, with the low rate of COVID this year, we look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving in a “normal” way with our families. As we all know, the Thanksgiving celebration is not a Church Liturgical celebration such as a feast day or solemnity. However, it is good to note that we Christians do celebrate Thanksgiving differently from nonbelievers. While we celebrate Thanksgiving by thanking God and acknowledging that all we have and all our blessings come from Him, non-believers may not involve God in their Thanksgiving celebration.READ MORE
