December 1, 2019 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

We begin a new Liturgical Year on this First Sunday of Advent. This is a very special Advent as we Journey as a new community under our new Parish Name and look forward to the new life of Jesus Christ this Christmas and the new life as one Parish in the Mid Mon Valley.

Just as in each of our lives we always need to begin again to get up again, to rediscover the meaning of the goal of our lives, so it is also always necessary to rediscover the common horizon toward which we are journeying. As our Parish communities moves to the Unity under One Parish Name, let us allow this Season of Advent which we begin today, restore hope. Our Hope in the Gift of our Faith seen in the Christ Child and each other. A hope which does bot disappoint simply because God never disappoints, God is faithful.

Like Mary, who did not understand completely what the Angel invited her to accomplish. May each of us have the Faith and Trust on our Journey together this Advent to create one new Parish.
