Dear Friend…(Christmas 2023)

Warm greetings in this Advent season! As the days grow shorter and Christmas approaches, we reflect on the deeper meaning of this special time.

Advent marks the start of a new liturgical year, Cycle B, with a focus on the Gospel of Mark. It’s a season of waiting, growth, and hope, centered on themes of hope, peace, joy, and love. In our remote corner of the world, we eagerly await the return of the sun, symbolizing hope and new beginnings. We light Advent candles and sing “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” as a sign of anticipation for the gifts God brings.

We are deeply grateful for your generosity and friendship. You make a positive impact in Western Alaska, and your contributions are invaluable. If you have any prayer intentions or simply want to connect with us, we would love to hear from you. Your connection and support are vital to our mission.
