Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, according
to Mark, opens with the Baptism of Jesus
at the Jordan River. Immediately, Jesus calls
His first disciples and announces the Coming
of the Kingdom of God. There is such an urgency
to Mark’s Gospel. The time of fulfillment
is here and one must decide to follow
Christ and become part of His Mission to
bring the good news of salvation to the
By our Baptism into Christ, we are called to
follow Him and to build His Kingdom by the
holiness of our lives.
Next Sunday, January 28th, begins Catholic
Schools Week. The 10:00am will be celebrated
with our faculty and students. There will be
an Open House immediately following the liturgy.
Please come to the Mass and plan on
visiting our school to see all the many improvements
that we have been able to provide
through the generosity of our parishioners. I
am so very grateful for all your support. May God bless you for your goodness.
