FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – DECEMBER 27TH, 2015

holy-familyChristmas was truly a beautiful celebration of our Lord’s birth! A special thanks to everyone for the hard work that has gone into these days! A blessed Christmas to All!

Today we celebrate the beautiful feast of the Holy Family. We give thanks to God for the love and support of our families and we pray that our families will always keep the Lord Jesus close to our hearts.

This Monday, December 28th at 7:30pm, I invite you to meet us on the plaza of the Church as we go caroling around Woodside, sharing the joy of Christmas to other.
Friday, January 1st, is the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God. It is a Holy Day of Obligation. Please check the bulletin for the schedule of Masses.

Finally Bishop DiMarzio has asked me to have a special Mass here at St. Sebastian on Wednesday, January 27th at 7:30pm in preparation for the upcoming Eucharistic Congress in the Philippines. Bishop DiMarzio will be the Main Celebrant and Homilist, The Filipino Community of Brooklyn and Queens will be invited to attend the special Mass. I encourage all of our Filipinos here to attend!

Thanks for your support!

Rev. Kevin Abels, Pastor
