My Dear Friends in Christ,
Welcome! Today we gather on the holiest of days to celebrate the miracle of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Receiving salvation from the Christ Child is truly a reason for joy. It is with that spirit of joy that I welcome you to the Cathedral of Christ the King. Whether it is your first Christmas with us or if celebrating Christmas Mass at the Cathedral is a tradition, I am glad you are here.
The world rejoices that the King of Kings has come. As on that first Christmas, when Mary and Joseph welcomed the Christ Child into their family, we too can open our hearts and welcome the Christ Child into our lives.
It is my hope that through our Christmas Masses here at the Cathedral you will experience the joy and peace that only the Christ Child can bring. May you receive a renewed faith throughout the Christmas season and may God grant you every blessing in the New Year.
Yours in Christ,
Monsignor Frank McNamee
