Dear Parishioners and friends,

Peace and blessings!

As we continue to celebrate this great feast of Christmas (it officially ends today, the feast of the Baptism of Jesus) I want to offer a special thank you to Juan Ramirez for the trees he donated, to Joe Lee and his Northside Greenhouse for the beautiful poinsettias, the musicians and choirs, the children who participated in the Children’s Mass, the decorating committee and who labored with love, time and talent to bring this season of joy and peace alive in so many hearts. Those along with all the liturgical ministers, Thank You!

Men of the parish, mark your calendars for Saturday, February 9th. This will be a Men’s Retreat beginning at 8:30 and ending at 3:00. To register: email Bill Myers at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Cost is $15 to cover meals. Checks should be made out to Knights of Columbus Council 7184 and mailed to Bill Myers, 47 Lake Pointe Circle, Hendersonville, NC 28792-2842.

Today we are reminded that we, the children of Adam and Eve, are again made children of God through Baptism.

Blessings of the New Year!

In His peace,
