Welcome to our Parish website!

 

Blessings to all who visit this website!

We celebrate in this joyous season of Advent and Christmas. This time invites us to the central question of incarnation:
Why is it that God became one of us at Christmas?
This is the central question of this and all time.
Through the ages many different theories were presented: The Atonement, God had to send His Son to atone for the sins of humankind and Divinization, as proposed by St Irenaus in the 4th Century, God desired us to be like Him. In the end I think that 5th century Bishop and theologian St Augustine said it best: “Why did God become one of us? Out of sheer indescribable LOVE”
May you be abundantly blessed with that outpouring of God’s love in Christ this Advent and Christmas!
