The past year has included a great variety of notable events for members of Our Lady’s Missionaries, including the celebration of our 60th anniversary, beginning of new ministries and continuation of existing ones. In preparation for Advent and Christmas we look back at the year and see what we hope is a theme running through our lives and activities. Each reflects our desire to be part of the kindom of God, helping to build, strengthen and support where we can.
The celebration of Christmas causes us to stop, reflect, and be grateful for the message of Jesus, for the hope and promise of peace and justice for all people and the earth. It reminds us that the promise includes an invitation to help bring about its fulfillment. Once again, in the midst of celebration, we are given the courage and inspiration to continue being part of the growth of the kindom.
This season also gives us the opportunity to greet each of you who in some way affect our lives with encouragement and support. May you and your families and communities be blessed with joy, peace and hope.
With prayerful good wishes of Our Lady’s Missionaries
