With the Christmas season right around the corner, I wanted to thank you for the ongoing support of the Missionary Association of Mary Immaculate USA. It is through your generous support that we have been able to provide much-needed spiritual and physical healing to the mission poor around the world.

So that we may be joined as a Mazenodian-Oblate Family this Christmas, I also have three more gifts of prayer to extend to you.

Beginning on Christmas morning and continuing for nine consecutive days, we will celebrate a

Christmas Novena at the Church of the Nativity in the Holy City of Bethlehem, the location of Jesus’ birth! Starting on the same day, we will be celebrating Christmas Novenas at both of our spiritual centers: Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and Tepeyac de San Antonio, Texas, and the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois.

You and your loved ones will be remembered at all three of these beautiful Christmas celebrations. Simply send me the names of those in your life in need of by clicking the link below.

While we give thanks to Our Heavenly Father for the ultimate gift of the Baby Jesus this Christmas season, it is important that we remember those less fortunate. There is no better way to honor the birth of Jesus than by sharing the good fortune we have been granted.

To thank you for your generous donation of $25 or more, I will have a Christmas Candle lit for you and your loved ones at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois and for a donation of $50 or more a Nativity Candle will be lit at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

What a beautiful gift to give to your friends or family this Christmas season!

In Jesus Christ and Mary Immaculate,
Father David P. Uribe, OMI
Oblate Chaplain Director
