Welcome!

THE PEOPLE OF GOD'S KINGDOM

In our Gospel reading from Matthew, we hear the Beatitudes, the stirring opening to the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus is proclaiming the coming of the kingdom of God, and begins by considering what kind of people will enter and participate in this kingdom. They are the poor in spirit, the meek, the clean of heart, the peacemakers. We hear both Zephaniah and Paul echo this, as God specifically chooses the weak and the lowly to be God's agents in ushering in the reign of God. By living with humility and integrity, their hearts are open to being transformed by the grace of God. We too are called to live this way. Jesus invites us to be people with open hearts, to receive God's blessing. And working through us, God may bless all creation.

BLESSING OF THE THROATS

We will celebrate the Feast of St. Blaise on Friday, February 3rd. The faithful will have the opportunity to participate in the Blessing of the Throats following the 6:30AM & 8:30 AM masses. St. Blaise was a physician and bishop of Sebastea. He is the patron saint of wool combers, wild animals, candle makers and ailments of the throat.

THE SEARCH

What is the journey in between the event we call "birth" and the one we call "death"? Is the journey taking you somewhere, or are you leading yourself to some kind of destination - a destination that could extend beyond your last breath? What do you want from your life during and in between? The questions are there. And, the answers are too.

On Wednesday nights, we discuss our "Search." We will be using a seven part video series to assist us on our venture. Won't you join us!
