From the Director: Christmas 2018

Christmas wishes from the Archbishop Brunett Retreat Center

   Patrick Sharkey

Rejoice! “For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.”

To the many beloved members of our Retreat Center family, Merry Christmas! It is a joyful honor to wish you and your family every Christmas blessing on behalf of the Retreat Center staff. I pray that the Christ Child enters each of your homes in a new way, and that He showers His blessings upon you this year. Thank you for being a part of our family. Please know what a joy it has been to walk with you  in 2018, and know that you are in our prayers of thanksgiving this Christmas. We look forward to continuing together this journey of faith in 2019.

For now, let me again wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas. May your homes be filled with joyful laughter, warm smiles, and the peace of Christ. As we celebrate the birth of Christ this day, let us also remember His great second coming and together call out with one voice, “Come, Lord Jesus!”

Until that glorious day and until we see you next, God bless you and God love you.

Gratefully yours,
Patrick Sharkey, Director
