Baptism of the Lord
News and Notes: Thanks to all who made this Christmas Season so beautiful in both parishes: those who decorated the churches, all the ministers of our liturgies, especially the musicians and singers and everyone else who contributed to our celebration of the Lord’s Nativity in any way! Fr. Tony and I wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude for all your cards and gifts during this season of grace. We are blessed to serve at St. Maria’s and Our Lady’s as your parish priests. An important announcement: January 22 is the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe vs. Wade that legalized abortion in our country. The Bishops of the United States have asked that on that day Catholics observe a “Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.” To prepare us for that day, Deacon Tom O’Shea will be leading a Holy Hour for Life on Tuesday, January 21 from 7-8PM at OLA. Please mark your calendars and plan to come and adore the Lord of Life in the Blessed Sacrament. Blessings to all of you in the week ahead!
