Restore the Culture & Peace to the World


Dear Parishioners:

Christmas means Emmanuel, God with us. Yes, Jesus God came to be with us when He was born as a man over 2, 000 years ago. Today, in His tremendous love He continues to be very much present and alive with us, and really will always be with us. On this Christmas Season 2006, we pray that all of us here at St. Bruno’s Parish will also be with Him and that we accept Him in our lives and truly love Him and reach out to love on another, so that the purpose of his birth and coming on earth to be with us will be fulfilled: that is that we may be one with Him and with one another forever.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you from the Pastor and Staff at St. Bruno’s Church.


Queridos Feligreses:

La Navidad significa Emanuel, Dios-con-nosotros. Sí, Jesús vino para estar con nosotros cuando nació como niño hace mas de 2, 000 años. Ahora en Su grandioso amor El continúa estando presente y viviendo entre nosotros, y realmente siempre estará con nosotros. En esta temporada de Navidad 2006, rogamos al Señor para que todos aquí en la Parroquia de San Bruno podamos también estar con El, que lo aceptemos en nuestras vidas y que el propósito de su nacimiento y venida al mundo para estar con nosotros sea cumplido: es decir que seamos uno con El y los unos con los otros.

Una muy Feliz Navidad y un Próspero Año Nuevo del Párroco y del personal de la parroquia de San Bruno.
