Second Sunday in Ordinary Time January 16, 2011
I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth. — Isaiah 49:6b READINGS FOR THE WEEK Monday: Tuesday: Wednesday: Thursday: Friday: Saturday: Sunday: Heb 5:1-10; Mk 2:18-22 Heb 6:10-20; Mk 2:23-28 Heb 7:1-3, 15-17; Mk 3:1-6 Heb 7:25 — 8:6; Mk 3:7-12 Heb 8:6-13; Mk 3:13-19 Heb 9:2-3, 11-14; Mk 3:20-21 Is 8:23 — 9:3; Ps 27; 1 Cor 1:10-13, 17; Mt 4:12-23 [12-17]

STEWARDSHIP: The Call to Stewardship: Becoming a
disciple of Jesus leads naturally to the practice of stewardship. These linked realities, discipleship and stewardship, then make up the fabric of a Christian life in which each day is lived in an intimate, personal relationship with the Lord. This Christ- centered way of living has its beginnings in Baptism, the Sacrament of faith. As Vatican II remarked, all Christians are “bound to show forth, by the example of their lives and by the witness of their speech,” that new life of faith which begins in Baptism and is strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation. Faith joins individuals and the community of Jesus’ followers in intimacy with their Lord and leads them to live as his disciples. Union with Jesus Christ gives rise to a sense of solidarity and common cause between the disciples and the Lord and also among the disciples themselves.

January 16, 2011 Dear Parish Family, Today is the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Here is a piece I found from the St. Andrew Bible Missal, which speaks so beautifully about “Ordinary Time”. “Wasted time is not a prized commodity in American society. We are a people ruled by the clock. Time is money because time is to be filled with purposeful controlled activity which is productive of things which can be sold. We are convinced that we must be in control of time. The last thing the productive American would want to do is waste time playing around with realities that do not produce a saleable commodity. But the Creator of heaven and earth is described by the scriptures as the original and the best of players. Creative activity is playful, and creative people do not feel that what they do is a job. Creative people also have a sense that their creativity and all that they fashion in the creative spirit are gifts they have received. The Christian can speak of this and the contemplative vision which sees all reality as gift or grace. Our thankful response we call worship or eucharist. We cannot speak of Ordinary Time without speaking of Sunday. The every seven-day celebration of the Lord’s Day is the basic structure upon which the Church Year is built. The great liturgical seasons of Advent-Christmas and Lent-Easter are more expansive celebrations of particular aspects of the one paschal mystery which we celebrate every Lord’s Day. These special seasons focus our attention upon critical dimensions of one mystery, a mystery so overwhelming that we are compelled to separate out its various elements for particular attention. These seasons in no way minimize the critical importance of 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 the Christian community which comes together, remembering that on this first day of the week the Lord of Life was raised 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 the world what we believe about redeemed time now and for ever. What happens in our churches every Sunday is the fruit of our week. What happens as the fruit of the week past is the beginning of the week to come. Sunday, like all sacraments, is simultaneously a point of arrival and departure for Christians on their way to the fullness of the kingdom. This is not ordinary at all. This is the fabric of Christian living.” Taken from the Saint Andrew Bible Missal At all the Masses this weekend students from St. Peter Academy will share with us the benefits of a Catholic Education. Our school offers an excellent education experience which includes learning about our

Catholic faith and respect for one another. I invite you to visit St. Peter Academy during the upcoming Open House next Sunday, or on Thursday, January 27th, from 7 – 9 pm, during Catholic Schools Week, or some other convenient time. As you may have read in the bulletin last month, Sr. Barbara Takacs, M.P.F., has announced that she will be changing ministries at the end of this school year. I thank Sr. Barbara for her leadership role as Principal of St. Peter Academy over these 26 years. I ask that you keep Sr. Barbara in your prayers as she prepares to bring to a close one chapter in her life and prepares to begin a new chapter later this year. This time of transition and change can be a challenging time for many, but I believe that this time of transition can lead to growth and renewal for St. Peter Academy. The foundation that Sr. Barbara has built by her dedication, hard work, and commitment helps to ensure that the future will be even better. St. Peter Academy is a great school and is a model of Catholic Education and the next chapter is very promising. I thank the teachers of our school for their hard work and dedication, as well as the parents who are entrusting their children to us and investing in their futures. Thank you for your Stewardship of Time, Talent, and Treasure and for all that you do for our parish. Love, Fr. Larry Why should I register in the parish?- All members of the parish should be formally registered as members of the parish. However, you MUST be formally registered if you wish to arrange a Baptism, a Confirmation, or a Wedding in the parish Church. You MUST also be formally registered if you wish to register in the Parish School or the Religious Education (CCD) Program. You MUST be a registered member of the parish for at least three months before you can obtain a Sponsor Certificate or schedule a Baptism or a Wedding.

For bulletin submission
Please e-mail olqpbulletin@gmail.com by Thursday for it to be in the following Sunday (a week later).

St. Fillan Feast day: January 19

Dates Jan. 16th through Jan. 23rd, 2011

Fillan, son of Feriach and St. Kentigerna, was also known as Foelan. He became a monk in his youth and accompanied his mother from Ireland to Scotland where he lived as a hermit near St. Andrew's monastery for many years, and then was elected abbot. He later resigned and resumed his eremitical life at Glendochart, Pertchire, where he built a church and was reknowned for his miracles. Various legends attribute the most extravagant miracles to him, such as the one in which his prayers caused a wolf that had killed the ox he was using to drag materials to the church he was building, to take the ox's place. Fillan died on January 19. His feast day is January 19.

Non-gluten hosts
A few members of the parish have inquired in regard to having non-gluten hosts made available to them. Happily we now have them. For those who wish to receive Holy Communion with this Altar bread, we ask the following: 1. that you contact the rectory and advise us which Mass you will be attending. 2. that you see the priest that is having the Mass at least 10 minutes before hand. 3. that you sit near the front of the church so you can be the first person to receive from the celebrant. 4. if you have called the rectory to let us know that you have this special need but are unable to attend the Mass you have stated, let us know that you will not be present. NEW MASS TRANSLATION - Please go to our website www.olqp.org to view the upcoming changes in the wording of several parts of the Mass. These translations will help the English speaking Church to be closer to the original text and will begin on November 27, 2011. PLEASE REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS:
