Merry Christmas!!

I wanted to come on here and make a short post hoping that everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday. Christmas is one of the most important times of the year as it is the birth of Christ.

I would love to hear from you guys out there who are following my blog on what your Christmas traditions are. Do you spend time with family? Go eat at a certain restaurant every year? Go to mass at your favorite church?

One thing I’d like this blog to be is a “community” type blog. What I mean by this is that I’d like for everyone following to get involved. Everyone can voice their opinion on topics we’ll be speaking about over the course of this domains presence.

I’ll post an email that people can send emails to talking about each and every topic at the end of this post and all post going forward so that you all can get a hold of me.

I’ll start off talking about my big Christmas Eve/Christmas tradition that I have with my family.

Every year on Christmas Eve we go to mass at a church called St. Raphael Parish at 4:30. After mass we go straight over to Brio Tuscan Grill at Crocker Park. This has been our tradition for years.

Christmas morning we wake up very early and we open presents. the rest of the day we usually hang around and then my grandmother comes over for Christmas dinner. After dinner we usually go up and bowl at a bowling alley, which is the only alley open on Christmas.

Now I want to hear from you guys. Send me an email to theurbanpastor@gmail.com and I will possibly even adopt some of your guys’ traditions into mine.

About The Urban Pastor

Hey again everyone!! I wanted to get back on here after my short post the other day to kind of give you a rundown of what to expect from my new website.

As you know (or most of you know) the meaning of urban relates to a city or a town and a pastor is someone who is in charge of a catholic congregation, or in other words a priest. Now I know what you’re thinking, This is some priest who is going to shove catholicism down our throat.

Well, not exactly. Ya see, I am Catholic and I’m proud to be Catholic. However, I’m not a priest. It was just a catchy title to my domain (or at least I thought). The urban part simply has to do with the fact that I live smack dab in the middle of a city. I’m going to try and do my best to keep that city a secret (for privacy purposes)

With all that said I really want to dive into all things catholic, religion in general (of all kinds), the meaning of life, different catholic churches around the United States that I have been to and why you need to go there to visit. (Ok maybe I will be shoving religion down your throats. Sorry)

I will open up a contact page at some point where you guys can send me a message if you want to speak personally through email.

Thanks again for the support every body and talk soon!!

It’s official!!

I’m tight on time right now so PLEASE come back in the upcoming days and I will lay out exactly what this website will be about and have majority of it cleaned up and made up. Thanks to all of you for your support it means the world to me!!
