Merry Christmas from Fr. Simon Kalonga!

Merry Christmas - Pastor Fr. Simon Kalonga's Christmas message - St. Joseph Catholic Church - Ft. Collins - CO 80521

My dear parishioners, my new family:
I pray for you always. The staff and I offer prayers especially for you during the Christmas season. We pray for God’s blessings for you and your family while celebrating the Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, as well as blessings throughout the new year. We continually thank God for you!

My dear visitors:
I pray that the Lord, the God of the Univers, who came to us humbly as a little baby, will bless you especially during this most holy season! I speak for the staff and our parishioners in welcoming you and your families and ask for God’s blessings upon you in your visits and travels. I thank God for your presence here with us during this most blessed season.

I hope that you will take some time to enjoy this pictorial story of our Parish family. We are a microcosm of the worldwide Catholic Church where rich and poor from many backgrounds worship our Lord and Savior together in peace.

No matter if you are a parishioner or a visitor, if you are hurting, suffering, questioning your faith, thinking about coming back to your roots in the Catholic Faith or considering becoming a member of the Catholic Church, we would love to help. Contact us! Let’s talk and pray together.

Fr. Simon Kalonga
Pastor, St. Joseph Catholic Church
