Reading I Zephaniah 2.3; 3.12-13 Responsorial Psalm Blessed are the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!
Reading II 1 Corinthians 1.26-31 Gospel Matthew 5.1-12
Food for Thought

Each of the “blessed” is a statement about something important in the Christian life. They are an ideal of how to live and how to find God close to us.

We can ask for the grace to live by this vision of life, which was at the root of how Jesus lived.

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.

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

PLANNED CAPITAL PROJECTS
The wardens are looking at two major capital items this year, as follows:

  • Fence along Joseph Street Property – Plans will be developed to build a fence along the church property line where the cedar hedge was located. This project will also be discussed with parishioners.

CANCER FOR THE RELAY FOR LIFE
At the St. Pat’s tea, there will be a table set up to purchase Salsa and butter tarts and a few handmade items. All proceeds from that table will go to Cancer for the Relay for Life.
