This Week’s Sunday Gospel Reflection

Readings available at www.usccb.org/readings

Sunday, January 24 – 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Contemplation from Lectio Divina

 What conversion of mind, heart, and life is the Lord asking of me?

 Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God.

How do I proclaim the gospel of God by my words and actions? How can my proclamation be more authentic?

Repent, and believe in the gospel.

How can I nurture a spirit of true repentance? How can I increase in trust of god’s mercy?

Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.

What am I willing to give up for the Lord? What prevents me from following the Lord wholeheartedly?

Q & A Session: “Annulment: Fact & Fiction”


Pilgrimage to Greece & Turkey – Info Meeting on February 8, 6 PM


Live Lent!

Make This Lent About What You Do, Not What You Don’t Do!

During the coming Lenten season, instead of depriving yourself of some type of food or form of entertainment, join a small group for six weeks and participate in Live Lent, an opportunity to read Scripture and share your faith with some of your fellow parishioners. Small groups will meet for 90 minutes once a week via Zoom.

The faith-sharing also provides meditations for you to use on the other days of Lent. It’s a great way to make Lent a more meaningful season as you prepare to celebrate the Resurrection.

Sign up here by Friday, February 12 for a small group; there are multiple days and times to choose from. Contact Colleen Sisolak sisolakmc@sjehydes.org with questions.
