Reflection

Today’s feast, older than Christmas, marks the showing (epiphany) of Jesus to the world. Once revelation had been limited to the chosen people of Israel; now it extends to all nations. In the persons of the wise men the world comes bearing gifts to worship its King. The magi responded to signs, even to that most surprising sign of God’s presence in the world, a little child cared for by its mother. God manifests who he is in weakness and simplicity rather than in power. The psalm brings to mind Jesus’ ministry to the needy; one day all humankind will worship and serve him as God’s Son. Isaiah speaks of the presence of God as a great light rising over the city of Jerusalem, drawing peoples from all over the earth out of their darkness. God’s presence makes his people radiant, and praise to him wells up spontaneously. God’s revelation of himself to the world is the great mystery of which Ephesians speaks; all of us without exception are called to be members of Christ’s body and radiant signs of his glory.

Children's Christmas Party Review

In early December the Knights of Columbus supported by the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Refugee Outreach Committee held a Christmas Party and provided a toy to each child up to 13 years of age and a $25.00 No Frills Gift Card to each family. 144 children from 44 families were treated to a party of pizza, samosas, oranges and drinks. They were entertained by Christmas caroling, musicians, the 11:00 Senior Choir and an exciting visit from Santa Claus. The children and their parents greatly appreciated the party, toys and No Frills Gift Cards. A good time was had by all and we thank all the volunteers and donors for helping to make this wonderful event happen.
