The Call to Stewardship:
Becoming adisciple of Jesus leads naturally to the practice of stewardship.These linked realities, discipleship and stewardship, then makeup the fabric of a Christian life in which each day is lived in anintimate, personal relationship with the Lord. This Christ- centeredway of living has its beginnings in Baptism, the Sacrament of faith. As Vatican II remarked, all Christians are “bound to showforth, by the example of their lives and by the witness of their speech,” that new life of faith which begins in Baptism and isstrengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation. Faith joins individuals and the community of Jesus’ followers in intimacywith their Lord and leads them to live as his disciples. Union withJesus Christ gives rise to a sense of solidarity and common causebetween the disciples and the Lord and also among the disciplesthemselves.

January 16, 2011Dear Parish Family,Today is the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Hereis a piece I found from the St. Andrew Bible Missal, whichspeaks so beautifully about “Ordinary Time”.“Wasted time is not a prized commodity in Americansociety. We are a people ruled by the clock. Time ismoney because time is to be filled with purposefulcontrolled activity which is productive of things which canbe sold. We are convinced that we must be in control of time. The last thing the productive American would wantto do is waste time playing around with realities that donot produce a saleable commodity.But the Creator of heaven and earth is described bythe scriptures as the original and the best of players.Creative activity is playful, and creative people do not feelthat what they do is a job. Creative people also have asense that their creativity and all that they fashion in thecreative spirit are gifts they have received. The Christiancan speak of this and the contemplative vision which seesall reality as gift or grace. Our thankful response we callworship or eucharist.We cannot speak of Ordinary Time without speakingof Sunday. The every seven-day celebration of the Lord’sDay is the basic structure upon which the Church Year isbuilt. The great liturgical seasons of Advent-Christmasand Lent-Easter are more expansive celebrations of particular aspects of the one paschal mystery which wecelebrate every Lord’s Day. These special seasons focusour attention upon critical dimensions of one mystery, amystery so overwhelming that we are compelled toseparate out its various elements for particular attention.These seasons in no way minimize the critical importanceof the Sunday celebration throughout the rest of the year.Ordinary Time is not very ordinary at all. Ordinary Time,the celebration of Sunday, is the identifying mark of theChristian community which comes together, rememberingthat on this first day of the week the Lord of Life wasraised up and creation came at last to completion.Sunday as a day of play and worship is a sacrament of redeemed time. How we live Sunday proclaims to theworld what we believe about redeemed time now and for ever.What happens in our churches every Sunday is thefruit of our week. What happens as the fruit of the weekpast is the beginning of the week to come. Sunday, likeall sacraments, is simultaneously a point of arrival anddeparture for Christians on their way to the fullness of thekingdom. This is not ordinary at all. This is the fabric of Christian living.”Taken from the Saint Andrew Bible MissalAt all the Masses this weekend students fromSt. Peter Academy will share with us the benefits of aCatholic Education. Our school offers an excellenteducation experience which includes learning about our 
PRAYER FOR PEACE - Mary, Queen of Peace, save us all, whohave so much trust in you from wars, hatred, and oppression.Make us all learn to live in peace, and educate ourselves for  peace, do what is demanded by justice and respect the rightsof every person, so that peace may be firmly established. Amen Pope John Paul 
We invite all our Parish Community to write a note / letter toour soldiers overseas. We pray that they may be safe.Keep Paul Bezak, Joseph Colangelo, Carolyn Rocco, and allthe soldiers in your prayers.

Catholic faith and respect for one another. I invite you tovisit St. Peter Academy during the upcoming Open Housenext Sunday, or on Thursday, January 27th, from 7 – 9 pm,during Catholic Schools Week, or some other convenienttime.As you may have read in the bulletin last month,Sr. Barbara Takacs, M.P.F., has announced that she willbe changing ministries at the end of this school year. Ithank Sr. Barbara for her leadership role as Principal of St. Peter Academy over these 26 years. I ask that youkeep Sr. Barbara in your prayers as she prepares to bringto a close one chapter in her life and prepares to begin anew chapter later this year.This time of transition and change can be a challengingtime for many, but I believe that this time of transition canlead to growth and renewal for St. Peter Academy. Thefoundation that Sr. Barbara has built by her dedication,hard work, and commitment helps to ensure that the futurewill be even better. St. Peter Academy is a great schooland is a model of Catholic Education and the next chapter is very promising.I thank the teachers of our school for their hard workand dedication, as well as the parents who are entrustingtheir children to us and investing in their futures.Thank you for your Stewardship of Time, Talent, andTreasure and for all that you do for our parish.Love,Fr. Larry
