A Gracious Gift of Love
Christmas Eve Mass at Penalakut was a joyful celebration of all that God gives us through His Son, Jesus. The Celebration of the birth of our Saviour was also the celebration of the spiritual birth of ten children and one adult in the waters of baptism, along with four young adults who were confirmed in the power of the Holy Spirit. It was such a wonderful way to begin my first Christmas in the Diocese of Victoria
Sr. Vinda and Fr. Joe have been ministering on Penalakut for three years and the graces were evident in the spirit of the celebration. The Elders welcomed me, and several people spoke of the joy in the community because of the baptism and confirmations of their grandchildren and children.
Oh what a gift was received from the gracious love of God!
