Dear ones under the heavenly patronage of the Holy Archangel Gabriel,
Christ is in our midst!
I have been on the phone with Archbishop Benjamin, this morning. His flight was first delayed, then changed, and then cancelled. He even tried to arrange to drive up here from San Francisco, but nothing has worked out. He regrets to have to cancel this weekend, especially as many of you have prepared to brave the roads, make wonderful food and adjust plans, in order to be in church this weekend.
His Eminence is still planning to visit us in the near future, but an exact date has yet to be worked out.
Hoping to see you in church, as Christ will still be in our midst!
