Beginning on Monday I will be on my annual personal retreat. I normally am in Seaside, Oregon for this but because of the pandemic I will be in my home. I will be reflecting on Pope Francis’ latest encyclical Fratelli Tutti which focuses on fraternity and social friendship. I also plan to take next weekend off. Fr. Chuck Palluck will preside at the masses on Jan. 30th and 31st. Please pray for me as I will for you.
Thank you for your Christmas gifts to me. I appreciate your kindness. May the Lord bless all of our community in a special way.
