My Brothers,


As of this writing the COVID Vaccine has arrived in our State and is beginning distribution as we speak. It is estimated that many will not see an inoculation until late January or February but at least there is real hope on the horizon. THANKS BE TO GOD!

Our message this month is short: prepare for the coming of the Lord. CHRISTMAS (NOT Xmas) is nearly here. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord we also need to take a look back at this last year and remember how grateful we should be that so few of our members and families have been taken by this terrible Pandemic.

It is also time to look forward and continue to pray for our Clergy and each other and our families. Please also pray for our elected leaders, regardless of who you voted for, these are the ones in power now and they need our prayers. Pray that they will be more favorable to the Culture of Life and not the culture of death. Pray that Religious freedom be protected at all costs, and pray for our Church that many who have fallen away will return and bring others with them.

We are at a crossroads now. It is clear we will not reach our original goal of new members this fraternal year but for very good reason. Everything possible must be Virtual for now. Each of us must remain vigilant to avoid in-person meetings when not absolutely necessary. I know many thoughts are well intended but lives are at stake here. We can do a lot more good for a long time after this has passed, if we are still alive.

God bless you all and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
