Reading II Romans 1.1 - 7 Gospel Matthew 1.18 - 24
Food for Thought

As Paul presents himself to the believers in Rome. He echoes the nativity stories we read in both Luke and Matthew: the child Jesus is “son of David.” sprung from the Jewish tradition, and Jesus is also "Son of God," through the power of his resurrection. This Jesus brings salvation to the Jews and to Gentiles alike.

What is my Christian ministry? How would I describe myself? What are the key points in my Christian Journey?

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.
