Bishop Brian’s New Year Message

Dear brothers and sisters,

Happy New Year!

This weekend we both begin a New Year as well as celebrating two beautiful Christmas Feasts. Firstly, on Saturday we celebrate the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. This Feast reminds us that God humbly took on our human nature so that we could become like the divine. On Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of the Epiphany which reminds us that God was born for all people and that no one who seeks him will be left disappointed.

As we enter 2022 let our hearts be uplifted with joy and hope. We are precious to God – so let us move forward with confidence!
