Reading II 1 Corinthians 1.10-13, 17-18 Gospel Matthew 4.12-23
Food for Thought

Faith is born in us from others and for others. It is not a matter of me and God, me and Jesus, or just me - and God inside me. Jesus called his apostles in community and the same with us: religion is to be personal and not private; personal and communal. We light the candle of faith for each other.

Let me pray for all those who are co-workers in the gospel-field of Jesus and give thanks for those who have faith.

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH?     WELCOME!

Welcome to those who want to make our parish their faith home. You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest.

Thank you and welcome.

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION
Our two parishes are in the process of determining if there will be sessions for sacramental preparation for Reconciliation/First Communion as well as Confirmation. In order to better plan for these sessions, parents should register with the Secretary no later than January 30th, 2011 for both sacraments. Once registrations are received, we will determine what, when and where these sessions will be offered.

ECUMENICAL SUNDAY SCHOOL
The next Ecumenical Sunday School service at St. Stephen’s will be held on February 6th at 11 am.

PRAYERS & SYMPATHY
- requested for Marion (Pearson) Champagne whose funeral was held last Monday on January 17th at St. Gregoire. Our prayers and sympathy are with the Champagne family.
