This year of pandemic has people decorating early for Christmas! As Advent will soon arrive this manger scene is a gentle reminder that Christ was born into precarious conditions, experienced relocation and the holy family lived thru uncertainties. We implore the Holy Family to hear the pleas and intercede for an end to the Coronavirus. Bestow on the nation a renewed unity and respect for every person. Urge us on to cultivate the talents received to give praise to Christ our Consoler.
