Merry Christmas, Dear Friends!

In the midst of the festivities, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas – the miraculous gift of God’s love for all humankind through the birth of Jesus Christ. May this season inspire us to deepen our faith, strengthen our bonds with one another, and rekindle the flame of hope that burns brightly within our hearts.


As we go about our celebrations with loved ones this season
may we pause to remember those who may be experiencing
loneliness, hardship or despair. Take a moment to reach out
in kindness and generosity and share the
hope, peace, joy and love to those who need it most.

During this holy season I think of all of you and I am filled with the hope, peace, joy and love that this season brings. May the Christchild, who offers these gifts to us all, continue to bless you in the coming year.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and may the spirit of Christmas continue to shine brightly in our regional council in the coming new year.

Wishing you Peace and Blessings,

Rev. Cheryl Bolton
President, Antler River Watershed Regional Council
