It again has been a Blessed Christmas Season here at the National Shrine of the Infant of Prague. The church was decorated beautifully by volunteer parishioners We received over 900 names for our Christmas bell tree. We pray for your intentions for the names that you submit. We hope you had very Merry Christmas with your family and friends, and that you have a safe and healthy New Year. The weather around here has been unseasonably warm this year. I can't wait to see what January brings us.
Have a Happy & Joyous Thanksgiving. Be safe on your journey this weekend.

Today Weatherbug.com says we got .56 of an inch of rain today. It is hard to believe that we needed rain after record-breaking rain in June. The month of July was very dry. It is also nice because it cools things down a bit. The tempurature is only 80 degrees today. I am happy about that.
July was a struggle emtionally as Father Long's dad passed near the end of the month. We had a Vietnamese Mass which was so beautiful.
I hope this finds you all well and having a great summer.
You cannot tell today (It is 52 degrees today), but we are almost through spring. I am sitting at my computer watching a pair of Robins feed their babies out my window. They are big and strong and will abandon their nest soon.
We just went past the Kolache Festival, and of course, we sold every last one. Thank you to everyone who helped with the bakes and going to the festival to help in the booth. Doing this kind of work is very important if we want to continue being a part of the Kolache Celebration, not only for the church, but also for the local tradition and heritage.
