       Feast of the Baptism of the Lord - January 13, 2019

   Dear Parishioners and friends in Christ,

     This weekend’s celebration of the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord officially brings to an end the Christmas Season. My thanks again to Tim Leitch, and to the Liturgical Environment committee for the beautiful Advent & Christmas decorations. Thanks also to the Laucella family for the festive Christmas decorations in the childrens' crying room. My thanks to our Parish Family for your generosity in this year’s Christmas Offering and for your financial sacrifices all throughout the past year.
      Contribution statements for 2018 will be sent out within the next week or so, as has been the practice over the years here. Please consider using weekly envelopes which makes this process easier for both you and our Business Office.
      Thanks for your generosity to this year’s “Giving Tree” at Christmas. Your gifts and gift cards made it a very Merry Christmas for your needy neighbors. 
     We are excited about our Open House on January 27th at Saints Cyril & Methodius Parochial School (see details on page 3 in this bulletin).  We all need to spread the good news about excellence in academics, affordable tuition, and
especially about our valued oriented Catholic environment where our Faith is both taught and lived, and especially where our school spirit is The Holy Spirit! And congratulations to our students who displayed their proficiency in band, orchestra and chorus this past week at their Christmas/Winter Concert.  Parents and guests were so proud!
     There will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Prayers For Life on Friday, January 18th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. following the 12:15pm Mass. Join in prayerful solidarity with those marching in Washington D.C.

Have a great week and God Bless you!
