During the Christmas Novena at Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and Tepeyac de San Antonio
Dear Friend in Christ,
Christmas is a time spent with family and friends making memories and practicing cherished traditions. This year, with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, those celebrations may look a lot different.
But one thing that has not been affected is the joy and anticipation we feel leading up to the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Despite this year’s unprecedented challenges, this holy time of the year is still centered around our joyous thanks for the gifts Our Lord has provided us, and the compassion to share our resources and talents to those most in need.
To thank you for your support of Oblates Missions, I have arranged for your prayer petitions to be remembered at our Christmas Novena of Masses. Beginning on Christmas Morning and continuing for nine consecutive days, the names of your loved ones will be presented at the altar of at Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and Tepeyac de San Antonio during our special masses of healing.
Please be sure to share with me the names of your loved ones in need of prayer, so I can make sure they will be remembered.
I hope you will also make a gift that will benefit our mission families living in the poorest communities around the world. What better way to give thanks to Our Heavenly Father this Christmas than a gift to the poorest of His children.
May God bless you this Holiday Season, knowing that you and your loved ones are in my personal prayers.
Thank you for your support.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your gift shortly.
