2017 Homilies


December 31, 2017 Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph
Homily by Father Joseph Pearce, C.O.

Father re-read some of the 2nd reading from Colossians, and asked us if we do all that? Are we kind to one another? Are we all gentle and patient, and forgive one another every wrong committed against us? He mentioned another scripture where we must be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect. Seems impossible? But if we love, then that is perfection, because that comes from God. He said our New Year's resolution should be to take on "heartfelt compassion".

December 24, 2017 Children's Christmas Mass
Homily by Father Joseph Pearce, C.O.

Father told us that Christmas is all about love. That the greatest Christmas present is the gift of God's love, and that we need to give it to others. If there is someone we are close to that is not with us at this time, that we should call them. That Christmas is not about all the gifts we receive, but the love we give.

December 24, 2017 Christmas Night Mass
Homily by Deacon Dr. Terrence R. Chisolm

Deacon told us that in his working with youth for the last 17 years he has experience with adolescents that have had a wide range of emotional behavior disorders. He has seen and witnessed love is defined by society and not the love that we are here to celebrate. In the love that is experienced from God is a love that is willing to extend oneself for the purpose of another's growth. That love is what we celebrate tonight which is called Christmas.
