Dear People of the Diocese,

Christmas is a wonderful opportunity for us to step back from the regular routine of life to focus on, and savor of, the precious gifts that are so important to us, but which we can so easily take for granted: family, friends, a God who in His love for us came down to earth as an infant on that first Christmas over 2,000 years ago.

As we move through the season of Advent and draw nearer to Christmas, we should take a little time to prepare ourselves spiritually for the coming birth of our Saviour.

Mr. Robert Hutchings has been appointed as Financial Administrator of the Diocese of Corner Brook and Labrador as of December 04, 2012.

The reading from the Roman Office of Readings for Wednesday of the First Week of Advent offers us some food for thought in this Year of Faith.
