GROTON, Conn. (NNS) -- Naval Submarine Base New London held a worship service attended by more than 100 people at the Shepherd of the Sea Chapel to reflect on 2011 and welcome in the new year, Dec. 31.

"It was a remarkable time spent and it was great to have that opportunity to reflect and look back upon 2011, as we look forward to 2012," said Lt. Bob Price, chaplain, Naval Submarine Base New London, who added that many worshippers of different Christian denominations gathered for the New Year's eve worship service.

Price provided his top five resolutions to focus on in the New Year.

"I would recommend Sailors and their families focus on spending quality time with each other; establishing individual goal setting; exploring personal improvement opportunities; reducing stress and focusing on ways to improve one's life in general," said Price.

Price and his family recently arrived to New London in November and are already adopting one of his five New Year's resolutions by spending quality time together.

"We have made sure to experience the local area as much as possible," said Price. "We are trying to enjoy as much of life as we possibly can."

Other chaplains who attended the New Year's worship service included Cmdr. Robert McGaha and Lt. Shaun Kennedy, both assigned to Naval Submarine Support Center New London.

"Our time together not only reinforced our love for and dependence upon Jesus Christ, but also visibly demonstrated Christian unity within the greater community," said McGaha.
