THANK YOU!! To my mother Bert for her support, Curtis Richardson prop master extraordinaire, the CYM who put in the effort and time and made it so wonderful, the kids who sang, the teachers who helped, the audience for coming and supporting the CYM & PSR, the ladies who made refreshments, and to Fr. Ptak who is always supportive of my ideas for our kids. Merry Christmas and blessings for a Happy New Year ~ Megan Woodrow
I want to thank everyone for the prayers, food, gifts, and love shown me this past month. My surgeon called with the pathology report and it showed my cancer was all encased within the ducts and had not spread to any lymph nodes. I will not have to do any radiation or chemo. Thank you, Fr. Ptak for the special anointing and blessing. Retha Rawls
Chapter and Verse: These are the descendants of Noah. Noah, a good man and blameless in that age, for he walked with God, begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Genesis Chapter 6, verses 9-10.
Hearken to my words, O Lord, attend to my sighing. Heed my call for help, my king and my God! To you I pray, O Lord; at dawn you hear my voice; at dawn I bring my plea expectantly before you. Psalm 5, verses 3-4
Thank you to everyone who sent Christmas cards and gifts to me here at the office. Your kindness, generosity, and encouraging words are greatly appreciated more than you will ever know. I want to wish everyone in our Partnership a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. God Bless, Rachel
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. Kristy and myself, would like to thank everyone for all the cards, gifts, and food (sweets), very appreciative. Remember, as St. John says, we are children of God. We must keep His commandments, and have confidence in God. The hardest thing I see in the world today, is the greatest commandment, “to love one another”. This demands us to faith and love directed to God, if you don’t love our neighbor, your missing out what God wants us to be, but if we truly believe in the “Person” signified by name; that’s faith in the name of “The Christ.” God has the power to cleanse our conscience, and restore our faith if we let Him! Good day and God Bless. Deacon Archie
I would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas. May newborn Christ bless you abundantly with good health and prosperity in the year 2019. I would also like to thank everyone for the Christmas cards, wishes, and any kind of support in my ministry. Special thanks to Rachel Hopfinger, Deacon Archie Bowers and all of those who quietly work to support our Partnership. May God bless you, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to all! Fr. Slawomir Ptak
