Advent offers a time of reflection about our identities as Catholic Christians. We wait, as a community of believers, in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior. Our world-wide community is comprised of local churches. We live our faith with our sisters and brothers in the Diocese of Orlando. As a community, we will celebrate the installation of Bishop John Noonan on December 16th. We thank our dear Lord for this loving and able shepherd. To enrich our experience of our local church, we offer “Forty Years of Faith.” This 2008, 45 minute, documentary offers a treasure trove of local history. Quite a few times, I caught myself saying: “I didn’t know that!” As the historical puzzle pieces fell into place, I experienced a deep sense of belonging. Like any member of our community, I had participated in some of these formative events. I’m sure that you will similarly recognize familiar faces at the opening of churches and schools and delight in this gift of family. Among the special moments for me were the Synod Assembly in August 2006, the many references to San Pedro Center and each glimpse of my pastor, Fr. Tom Barrett. Remember to smile for the camera during the Installation Mass. Your friends will look for you in the next documentary!
