Our recent Christmas bake sale featured a scaled-down gingerbread replica of our church, thanks to the creativity and generousity of a couple of our parishioners.
A raffle was held for the gingerbread church in support of the relief effort in the Philippines. A donation of $200 on behalf of our parish will be made to support the cause.
"How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Even a sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
Happy are those who live in your house, ever singing your praise"
