Central & Eastern Europe
For many in the churches of this area as well as parts
of Asia, the aftermath of 70 years of Soviet rule is
still felt in the form of poverty, infrequent pastoral
care , and lack of buildings in which the faithful may
worship. Your support is needed to fund grants that
strengthen the Church and promote ministries for
children and families, create affordable housing, and
provide cultural and
spiritual education.
Thank you for your generosity.

Stewardship Thoughts
February 8, 2015 - 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Operation Rice Bowl
This Lent :
Help feed the hungry in Africa.
Hungering for the Journey: Join our parish community—and more than 13,000 Catholic communities
across the United States—in a life-changing Lenten
journey with CRS Rice Bowl. You may pick up your
families rice bowl in the back of the church. Remember your Lenten sacrifices
change lives.

"Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off
to a deserted place, where he prayed...He told them,
'Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach
there also. For this purpose have I come.'" - Mark
1:35, 38
In today's Gospel reading we see a perfect example
of stewardship. Jesus gives His time to do all that
God wishes - healing the sick and preaching. Yet,
Jesus also makes time to be alone in prayer. It is
through prayer, spending time with God, that we find
the strength to do what God wishes us to do. Be sure
to find time every day to be with God.

That married people who are separated may find

Mass Intentions
As Catholics, we have a long tradition of having Masses celebrated for those we wish to offer up in prayer.
The Mass is the ultimate form of prayer, and each Mass is celebrated for an intention. We ask $10.00 per
mass intention.
Please consider having Masses celebrated for family and friends on special occasions and anniversaries, as
well as those who are in need of prayers. Masses are also encouraged in memory of those loved ones who
have died, especially on the anniversaries of their deaths. Contact Fr. Cory for more information!
