Dear Friends,

Once again, we prepare to celebrate the mystery of Christ’s coming into the world. We are filled with awe at the realization that Jesus continues to live His love, peace and compassion through each one of us as we participate in the building of the kin-dom (kingdom) based on truth and justice for all of creation.

We are grateful for your prayers, support and friendship during 2008. You made it possible for Our Lady’s Missionaries to share life and gifts of so many in Brazil, Nigeria, and the Philippines as well as in Canada.

2009 is a special year for Our Lady’s Missionaries as we celebrate 60 years since our beginnings in Alexandria, Ontario. We are filled with gratitude as we share stories of the many people who have touched our lives in so many countries, including Canada. We are truly blessed!

Rejoice with us as we pray Mary’s Magnificat:

“My soul proclaims your greatness, O my God, And my spirit has rejoiced in you, my Saviour.”

May God’s blessings and love embrace you and your loved ones during this Christmas season and as you walk into the mystery that will unfold in 2009.

Sr. Joan Missiaen, OLM
