    I remember my first assignment as a
    priest in Houma with a Dutch pastor and his
    sister that on December 6, St. Nicolas Day, they
    gave me and the other priest gifts, the Dutch day
    of giving gifts rather than Christmas Day. It was
    a wonderful surprise for me.

    Every Christmas is a wonderful
    remembrance for all of us as we recall the great
    gift from God - his Son, Jesus Christ. We give
    each other gifts, sometimes surprising gifts, but
    none that equals God’s gift of his Son.
    That Son of God was sent to all of us on a
    rescue mission, a mission with eternal

    How memorable, how wonderful is this
    time, as we celebrate this Gift from God who
    came to save all of us.

    Our world needs the continuing help of
    God to bring peace, forgiveness and
    reconciliation to mankind.

    Our songs sing of peace, our prayers
    express these desires, but our world erupts into
    violence, killings and evil in many different

    All of us Catholics during this season
    recall the great Gift from God and in our
    reconciliation with God and each other, try to
    mirror the goodness of God to bring his
    goodness, his kindness, his mercy, his
    generosity to others.

    The Gift of God given to us we try to
    share as a gift to one another as we imitate that
    Gift from God – Jesus the savior, our rescuer.


    We, the priests and staff of our parish
    remember all of you in our prayers, and wish
    all of you happy memories and a Merry
    Christmas Season.

    October is the Month traditionally dedicated to the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary. During this past October, members of the 9th and 10th grades of  St. Maria Goretti's School of Religion learned about the devotion of the Rosary with its 20 mysteries and how to pray it.  They also made their own Rosaries which they are proudly displaying and which Fr. Cyril blessed.  Each student chose his/her colored beads and learned that the Rosary includes 53 recitations of the Hail Mary and 6 of the Our Father for a total of 59 beads.
