Dear parish family and friends of St. Julia,
As we continue to journey through this season of Advent together as a parish family, we are drawing close to celebrating the birth of our Saviour. The Lord, our Lord, is very close to us. Our passages from Scripture remind us of this, and it is the recurring theme in the season of Advent.
The fact that our Lord is near to us, I pray, should bring comfort to all believers. Our Saviour took on our human flesh, to be one with us and to walk with us. He showed us how to live and how to love, both our God and our neighbour. He showed us how to be people of hope, peace, joy, and love.
As we enter now the Third Week of Advent, may we continue to embrace this season of preparation and the preparing of our hearts. Make the most of this time, and be the light of Jesus to someone this day.
O come, O come, Emmanuel.
May God bless each of you and those that you love, and I look forward to seeing you at mass this weekend as we celebrate the Third Sunday of Advent together.
From Our Pastor
