A Note From The Pastor...
I am always thankful for the people that God has placed into my life. My past assignments and growing up in Auburn, NH have provided me with lifelong friends. This year, I am most thankful for the gift of each of you who have immediately accepted me at Holy Trinity Parish, I not only consider myself your pastor, but also your brother and your friend. This includes the many college students who have accepted me within their Plymouth State University experience.
The Advent Penance Service for the Lakes Region Deanery is being held on Sunday, December 4th at 1:30pm at Sacred Heart Church in Laconia. There will be several priests including myself available to hear confessions. This is a wonderful way to prepare our hearts for the feast of Christmas.
As we begin our new liturgical year with the season of Advent, I pray that you will slow down and take everything in. This time of the year can be busy for all of us; I will continue to keep you in prayer.
Each year, I always take a week off during the season of Advent. I do this to slow myself down, and knowing that no other priest does the same, so I’m guaranteed to get coverage. I will be away from Friday December 9th and return on Thursday December 15th. I’m heading to Boston for the weekend, but otherwise will be in the area.
Together let us continue to pray for each other, for our nation and the world for healing and peace.
