Christmas is a season of hope and I meet many people throughout the year whose stories give me pause and fill me with hope. Every story changes every person who encounters it. I have invited Matthew, a young man in our recovery community to share a coffee with me and his remarkable story of hope with you.
It has been a difficult 2020 for everyone and for many, this Christmas will be celebrated in new ways. We will live stream Midnight Mass and Christmas morning Mass, and I invite you and your family to join us so that we may share together in the hope and joy of our Lord's birth.
Rejoice in hope,
Father Tom Hoar, SSE
President, St. Edmund's Retreat
