Fr. Killian Message for Christmas 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We have the joy of celebrating another Christmas Day. Christ is born! As we enter into this special and holy Christmas Season, I take this opportunity to wish everyone the happy blessings of God. The Babe of Bethlehem comes to dispel the darkness in our lives. He comes to lift us up in renewed hope because the infant Christ is the sure sign of God’s tender love for us. “For God so loved the world that He gave us his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Let us spend time gazing again and again on the Baby Jesus in the manger so that our hearts are captured by God’s love. The Incarnation is the definitive sign that God will never give up on us. At the manger may we see anew the Lord’s humility in being born the child of Mary. In the Holy Family, all families are renewed and blessed. God loves all children as he loved his very own. In fact, through the gift of faith and the sacrament of Baptism, God has made each of us his very own child. Let us celebrate our membership in God’s family.

May these sentiments prompt in us a renewed commitment to make our lives a gift to God and to one another. Yes, let us appreciate ever more deeply those around us. This is the best way to show our gratitude for God’s gift to us at Christmas!

Keeping you all in my daily prayers, and grateful for your membership in our parish, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Father Killian


Fr. Killian Message Regarding the Manger

December 14, 2022
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
As we continue to prepare for the celebration of Christmas, I sadly report that the wood of the outdoor manger is no longer serviceable having deteriorated from being stored outdoors these many years. This was surprise news to me and, I am sure, it is to all of you. Therefore, we will not have an outdoor display this year and we will consider what we might do in the future to bring back our outdoor manger.
Regarding the manger inside the Church building, it will be placed in the area that usually serves as the baptistery. You may recall my message last year in which I explained that the manger’s presence there was to make it more accessible for prayer and reflection, inasmuch as people could draw much closer to it than when it was in front of the altar in the sanctuary. Additionally, Church directives specify that the manger is not to be placed in the sanctuary. The Ordo, an annual book which gives directives regarding the liturgy, and the Book of Blessings state that “If the manger is set up in the church, it must not be placed in the presbyterium (the Latin word for the sanctuary). A place should be chosen that is suitable for prayer and devotion and is easily accessible by the faithful.” Having been to the grotto in Bethlehem, I believe our baptistery space is very suggestive of what one finds in the place where Christ was born.
It is my fervent hope that many will visit our manger and be filled with wonder at God’s love manifested in the Christ Child.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Killian
