Christmas Greetings from the Pastor "And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory of the Father's only Son; full of grace and truth." (John 1:14)

Fr. KraynakThis season of the year we are searching for that right gift to give to someone special. The gift that says to that person, "you are important to me and I want to give you an expression of my love". Some people do this with very expensive gifts that are sacrifices for them to make or an expensive purchase because we know that this is a exactly what our loved one wants or needs. Some others may use their time or talents to create special gifts that not only show their abilities but also their love for that person. I believe we get this idea from God who loved us so much and wanted us to be eternally happy with him that he gave us his only Son as his first gift to those who believe in him.

We, the members of Immaculate Conception Catholic Parish, have been given that gift from God, the only Son, Jesus Christ, and for Him we are thankful. We profess our thanksgiving in our daily prayers and especially in our gathering together to share the Eucharist. We express our thanksgiving in other ways as well, such as our care and concern for our brothers and sisters who are less fortunate. Our prayers for one another and for the souls of the dead are also acts of thanksgiving.

I, as the pastor offer my thanksgiving for the gift of Jesus Christ, especially at Christmas. In my daily prayers I also offer a prayer of thanksgiving for this parish I am privileged to serve, and for the wonderful people I get to work with every day. May God bless you all this Christmas Season and New Year with joy, peace and gladness.

-- Fr. Bill Kraynak

Stewardship Thought
DECEMBER 21, 2014 - Today's Gospel depicts the Annunciation of the Lord. As we prepare for the celebration of Christmas later this week, may we, like the Blessed Mother, become faithful and loving stewards of the presence of Christ, given to us by God the Father and the constant example of Mary, our Mother.
