Scenes from my first Christmas

Yes, this is my First Christmas.....as a Deacon of course. Fr. Andrew reminded me and the entire congregation of that, along with the story ...

As we celebrate at Grandma's House!

There will never be enough nor the right words to describe what happened yesterday in Berlin. I was standing way out back  with about fifty of us in the standing room only area. To give you some perspective, St. Anne's can hold 1200 faithful, and yes there wasn't an empty seat in her house. Bishop Peter spoke so well about how we all loved memere's house (grandma),as she had the best candies, she had special meals, she had that special china closet where she stored all her treasures, and yet she carried with her the greatest treasure of all, her faith and she passed it on to us. The faithful were reminded of that Treasure and that we must pass on this Treasure to the next generation. There were 350 yellow roses on the high altar, each representing the 350 vocations that have come out of Berlin. This nest, again coined by our Bishop, was given the opportunity to share our lives, our love, but most of all our faith with so many people. 

The procession was awesome............................

This will be the first of many to come!

How do you top off a day like this one. Well, Deacon Greg was standing next to me throughout the Mass and unfortunately couldn't stay, but Steve, Cheryl, Michelle, Chris, and Mike joined Terry and I for a nice meal and a chance to be with each other again. 

Bonjour et Adieu mes Amis!
