I cordially greet You All, God-beloved Brothers and Sisters, with such great and joyful Christian Feast of the Nativity of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, and the New Year too!

As the tidings of the Birth of Jesus had lit up the world a long time ago, let the light of this great Feast light up today our souls, fill them with sincere faith, grace, peace, and harmony. From all my heart, I wish that everyone on these holy days would feel the joy of Nativity, bring up to light their best human qualities, devote attention to their friends and family, and help those in need. Let us be sensitive and caring, keep our faith, and hope for the best. Let your houses be filled with love, peace, grace, and joy, mutual support, and gentleness, so that cordiality and prosperity never leave you. Let the newly born Christ send His blessings upon all who come to Him with the humble faith.

Christ is Born! Glorify Him!



Rev. Fr. Ioann, Rector of St. Panteleimon Church
