POOR BOX: collection is this weekend. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is grateful for your spare change being collected as Mass concludes. To a large extent, this loose change offering supports our Mary’s Kitchen operation from which so many are blessed with company, food, care and everything Christianity stands for. Please give generously.

 

RCIA - FAITH DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS: Mondays at 7:00 pm at the Cathedral residence. This is for anyone seeking full communion with the Catholic Church. It also serves as faith enrichment sessions for anyone seeking to develop their faith. All are welcome. Refreshments served.

 

4 YOUTH: In preparation for the beginning of Lent, It might be wise to think about what we are going to do during Lent to prepare ourselves for Easter. Catholic Social Teaching is a central element of our faith, being rooted in the Hebrew prophets who announced God’s special love for the poor as well as in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Catholic Social Teaching helps us understand who we are and how we are called to live in community with one another. The Church’s social doctrines touch upon seven core themes; life and dignity of the human person; call to family, community and participation; rights and responsibilities; options for the poor and vulnerable; the dignity of work and the rights of workers; solidarity; and care for God’s creation. There’s a good video on You Tube called The Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching that explains each theme. Why not consider what you can do to live these themes as you watch the video?

 

THE SOCIETY OF ST VINCENT DE PAUL: now takes items for recycling. When you bring in your contributions, simply use our number so that we’‘ll get credit - 638-9010. All such returns go toward the society’s operations especially our Mary’s Kitchen outreach.


 

COMMUNION CALLS FOR FEBRUARY: will be carried out Thursday, February 28th. This practice of bringing the Eucharist to those who cannot join us for Mass is a great blessing. Perhaps you know someone who might like this service. Just invite such persons to call and request to have their names added to the list.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER: World Day of Prayer is an international movement of many traditions - people who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year, and who, in many countries, have a continuing relationship in prayer and service. World Day of Prayer, initiated and carried out by women, is now for everyone,  in more than 170 countries and regions. It is held internationally on the first Friday of March.

KING SAUL’S SPEAR: Saul was the first king of Israel. He was anointed by the prophet-priest Samuel about 1020 B.C. Samuel probably thought that he could easily control the new ruler, but Saul gradually began to take over religious duties as well. The priest decided to replace him with the young David. When the king discovered this he became jealous of David and tried to kill him. David escaped and fled with Saul in pursuit. The youth became a guerilla leader and hid in the desert. On one occasion de discovered the king sleeping with his soldiers. Instead of killing his foe, he demonstrated respect. This event is a reflection of Jesus’ instruction to love one’s enemy.

 

THE LAST ADAM: Paul has been dealing with a local issue in Corinth. There is a group that has denied the need for a physical resurrection. They are influenced by Greek philosophy, which believes that anything material is of no value. To illustrate his belief that the body is important, he makes a connection between the first human being and Jesus. Adam was created from the dust of the earth. In fact, the word “adam” means “dust”. Paul notes that though Jesus came from heaven, he became human- the new Adam. We have all descended from the first human, but now we begin to share divine life through the ultimate human: Jesus, the son of God.

BULLETIN BLOOPERS:

Irving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.

Ladies, don’t forget the rummage sale. It is a good chance to get rid of those things now worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.
