Father Willy Raymond,CSC, National Director of Family Theater Productions, invited 60 plus guests to gather in the patio of Family Theater at the end of a joyful evening of Christmas carols, Christmas foods and Christmas greetings. There he offered a prayer for the dedicated staff of Family Theater Productions and their guests and thanked them for their generosity and support throughout the year.

“Dear Friends, I want to thank each person here tonight and wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Before we conclude this wonderful evening with good friends and collaborators by singing the Salve Regina, I wish to let you know how much we appreciate your friendship and delight in your ongoing presence in our lives. Let me use words from Pope Benedict to express this prayer:

‘And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we truly know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is willed, each of us is necessary. There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.’

Mary was surprised by the Gospel and immediately had to share that great good news with her cousin Elizabeth. We are delighted to share our work and our friendship in Christ with you.

We could not accomplish all that we do without you. Because you share your time, talent and treasure with us, we are able to reach out and inspire people not only here in Hollywood, but also in 16 other countries around the world,”
said Father Raymond.

“ We are blessed by your involvement in our work and extend our sincere thanks and blessings to you and your families at the joyous time of year. Thank you for your efforts to continue the vision of our founder, Father Patrick Peyton, that a world at prayer is a world at peace.”
