Another year has come and gone and our small church continues to prosper. I extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our parishioners who have worked hard to make this happen. Also, I would like to express a special thank you to all of you who made our annual Christmas Luncheon a huge success. The attendance for the event was great.
As always, a big thank you Father Peter for guidance and leadership this past year. May God Bless him with many more years of good health and happiness. His dedication is truly exemplary.

January 19th the Church Council will hold its annual general community meeting to discuss finances and projects so please come and participate in discussion because we need everyone's ideas and suggestions.
