I am happy to announce that Catherine Carbone is our new bookkeeper here at St. Luke’s. She will bring competence and experience to this important position. Cathy has been a parishioner here for many years and will do a great job in her new position.
Today is December 8th, the day the Church reflects on Mary, the one filled with grace. I see her as a model of the Advent Season in her role as a perfect instrument for God’s birth in the world. For us to be like Mary we need to free ourselves from the trappings of sin. What attitudes need to be addressed in our lives so that we can better make Jesus known in our world? God can do the impossible in us if we but get out of His way. Advent is a time for grace and miracles.
Fr. Bob Hawkins
