Pastoral Epistle for New Year, 2022
Greetings in Jesus!
“Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You.” Psalms 33:22
This is my prayer for each of us as we enter 2022.
Let us hope in our Lord with all our heart that His mercy may abound on us.
The Lord has been close to us throughout this year. Our journey may not have been as delightful as we wanted it; but God was close to us and has carried us in His arms. We are thankful for all His blessings and guidance.
I assure you of my fervent prayers as you journey into the New Year. May our Lord’s choicest blessings and guidance be with you in 2022. My best wishes to you and your loved ones for a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your ministry in the House of God. My sincere thanks to our Wardens and Deputy Wardens, Advisory Board members, Parochial leaders – Choir, Sunday School, Youth Fellowship, Young adults, Outreach.
