A Christmas Message from the Rector

Dear Friends,

Merry Christmas! Today, people across the globe are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. In an unprecedented, unimaginable, and unparalleled act of divine love, God chose to be born and walk among us in Jesus. Hallelujah!

I arrived as Church of Our Saviour’s rector in September, 2019. My wife Anne (also an Episcopal priest) and our three daughters Eleanor (age 11) and Harriet (age 8) and Frances (age 5) feel deeply grateful to call Church of Our Saviour—and San Gabriel—home. We are thrilled to be sharing Christmas with this wonderful community!

Whether this is the first time you have joined us this Christmas season, or you grew up in this church, we thank you for choosing to spend a portion of your time with us. We are better, and our celebration of the birth of Christ is more joyful, because you are a part of our church family. Please know that your voice matters to me, and to the leadership in this worship community. If you have feedback of any kind, please feel free to share it with me, a staff member, or a member of Vestry (the board of the church organization).

I pray that your celebration this season of Christmas is bright, joyous, and full of God’s grace.
