I will try to be there on New Year's Eve, but if it continues to rain, please check, before leaving home.
"I'm sorry I could not make it to Morrison on Sunday due to the high water. You are, of course excused from Mass that day. I pray the water will quickly go down and we can return to normal. Of course with the Bailey Creek bridge out, that will not be anytime soon." “I pray that your Christmas celebrations were full of blessings from the Newborn Christ, our King. May your holiday times and events be full of joy and happiness. May the coming New Year be for you a year of grace and mercy from our God and Father. I count each and every one of you as special gifts and blessings to me and my ministry here with you. God Bless you.”…Fr. Dave
New Candlesticks and Sanctuary Lamp Holder at MPH – The purchase of the gleaming new processional candlesticks was made possible thanks to the generosity of the Knights of Columbus and some remodeling money that was left. Thanks also to the Genevieve Boss estate for the generous donation of the sanctuary lamp holder.
