New Church Year and Solemn 70th Anniversary – Looking to the Past and the Future
Dear parishioners,
We enter the new church year with gratitude for the past and anticipation for the future in our hearts. This year is especially meaningful as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of our church, which has been filled with blessings, community, and God's grace.
A new church year brings with it the promise of a new beginning, opportunities for spiritual and communal growth, and a deepening of the love of Christ. We look back, thanking God for all he has done among our church. Many have served, loved, and shared joys and challenges.
The theme for the coming year is "In Constant Gratitude". It is an invitation to see God's hand in all things and to give thanks for joys as well as trials. At the same time, we are preparing to celebrate the 70th anniversary of our church in a spirit of shared thanksgiving, joy and gratitude.
Solemn 70th Anniversary:  We invite you to join us in celebrating our 70th anniversary, which will be held on January 7 at 12 in our church. The programme includes a celebratory mass where we look back on past years and thank God for His faithfulness. The festivities begins with a shared coffee, music and socializing. This day is an opportunity to celebrate the history of our church together and look to the future with confidence.
New Church Year:  The Church Year begins on 1. advent and we celebrate it as a new beginning, and we pray for a blessing for the coming year. This is a time for new opportunities, personal growth, and walking together in the light of Christ's teaching.
Approaching events provide an opportunity for connection, gratitude, and anticipation. I invite everyone to participate enthusiastically and to thank God together for the past achievements of our church and what He is preparing for the future.
We are grateful for our community and look forward to these celebrations and the new church year, rich in God's grace and love.

Blessed festive winter!
