Christmas Holiday Schedule 2018

Diocese of Trenton – Linked Parishes of  St. Pio of Pietrelcina, Lavallette

and

Church of the Sacred Heart, Bay Head

 Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

 It is with great joy that we greet each year the beauty and simplicity of the essence of Christmas. For beneath the glitter and the music and the trappings, deep beneath lies a tiny child born for you and for me, the simple expression of the love that God has for us.  Everything else, and I hope there is much joy and celebration for you this year, everything else points to that one message, a birth that changed the universe forever.

I am very excited about joining you for Christmas Mass at Sacred Heart for the first time, and at St. Pio again this year as we receive the gift of Christ in the manger and in the Most Holy Eucharist.

 With my thanks for your prayers and support this year, and assuring you of mine for the future,

 With Christmas blessings,

Rev. Fr. Douglas A. Freer, Pastor
