His Grace, Bishop Michael, offers an Archpastoral Letter to the faithful of the diocese on the celebration of Our Lord's Nativity. In part, he writes: "On this most joyous Feast, let us unite together as a diocesan family, each in his own parish, and raise our voices in hymns of praise of the Incarnate One born of the Theotokos. Let us open our hearts to the gift of His love in His becoming one of us to die for our salvation; and let us renew our commitment to His way of life, begun at our baptism. Come, let us worship Him as our God! …not just this day, but at every opportunity through the coming new year!"
