2 Christmas: The Nativity of Lord Jesus Christ Saturday and Sunday December Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus. (Matthew 1:18-25) Dear Friends, Even though we are still in the Advent season, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas! I look forward to being with you, not only for all of our Masses this weekend, but for all of our Christmas Masses as well. Thank you for your constant love and support. One of the things that makes Christmas at Saint Jude so wonderful is our celebration of liturgy together. This could not be possible without the help of so many people: those who decorate, serve at Mass, read at Mass, our ushers, greeters, and, of course, our music ministry! I am so very thankful to all of you and truly hope that this time of year will renew you in spirit and in peace! Again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Sincerely yours, Fr. Trey Nelson Pastor P.S. As I will be mentioning at Masses this weekend, Father Mike has asked me to let you know that he is sick and recovering from pneumonia. I know that we are all so grateful for his ministry to us. Please keep him and who are sick in your prayers.
