We wish you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!


“The times are difficult. They call for courage and faith. . .
Let us pray for one another, love one another in truth,
in the sobriety of earnest Christian hope,
for hope, says Paul, does not deceive.”

Dorothy Day quoting Thomas Merton’s Christmas Greeting
(The Catholic Worker, December 1968)

This Christmas, my thoughts turn to the Holy (refugee) family of Nazareth and to the many displaced persons who are suffering because of conflict in so many parts of the world. Yes, “the times are difficult”. They call for courage and faith and prayers. They also call us to generous action.

All of us at The Lay Centre wish you a blessed Christmas and New Year, a time filled with a “hope that does not disappoint”. Above all, let us rejoice, for God is truly with us!
