Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jan 24, 2021

During Masses this weekend and next we are enrolling the children who are preparing to receive First Communion this spring.  They are praying and studying at home with their parents, and having several sessions (including a retreat day) here at the parish during their preparation time.  Let’s make sure the example of our daily living reveals the influence of the Eucharist we receive here at Mass in all we do.

       If you are having a difficult time in your marriage in some way, it is always better to do something sooner than later.  “Retrouvaille” is a weekend program designed to get your relationship back on track, and the next local session is coming up next weekend on

29-31 January. Do your marriage a favor and check elsewhere in this bulletin for further information.

       Officers were elected at the January meeting of the 2021 Pastoral Council, and so we offer prayerful support and congratulations to:  Laura Weber  (President), Genevieve Mbamalu (Vice-President), Larry Timko (Recording Secretary), and Dan Kmiecik (Corresponding Secretary).  This important body meets monthly and advises me, as pastor, regarding major parish decisions and future planning.  The entire 2021 Pastoral Council is commissioned for service to our parish at the 5:00 PM Saturday Mass this weekend.

       Catholic Schools Week will be observed at our parish next Sunday at the 11:00 AM Mass, and children from various Catholic Schools in Frederick County will be serving in various ministries at that Mass.  All Catholic School students are reminded to wear their uniforms to Mass next weekend.

       As you will see detailed in the bulletin this weekend, a Zoom Book Study on Henri Nouwen’s “Return of the Prodigal Son” will be starting in February.  Our Adult Formation Committee will also be offering some other winter Adult Faith Formation opportunities which will be advertised in coming weeks.  Registration info can be found in the bulletin.
