SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Jn 1:35-42
John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
"Behold, the Lamb of God."
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them,
"What are you looking for?"
They said to him, "Rabbi" — which translated means Teacher —,
"where are you staying?"
He said to them, "Come, and you will see."
So they went and saw where Jesus was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon.
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him,
"We have found the Messiah" — which is translated Christ —.
Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said,
"You are Simon the son of John;
you will be called Cephas" — which is translated Peter.

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

Dear Friends,

Each year has its joys and sorrows, and each year we have hopes and dreams that may or may not have come true. Some of us have achieved certain milestones in our lives and careers that provided us with an opportunity to celebrate, and others of us are working towards achieving special milestones in 2018.

Most of us are hoping that as the New Year starts we will begin to turn the corner from the end of 2017. We believe that Christ will continue to be with us on our faith journey. As we reflect, we can discover what really matters in life. When you think about the New Year and what might be in store for you, here are some questions for you to contemplate:

Where does faith fit into your sense of purpose?

  • What does it mean to you to be and live as a Catholic?
  • What does your faith community mean to you?
  • What do you want to do to serve God in 2018 – what are you willing to commit to?
  • Are you willing to commit your life to Christ, if you haven't already done so - why or why not?

As each new year unfolds, we encounter changes from the previous year; and this last year was no exception. As I recall 2017, I am thankful for each one of you and everything that we were able to accomplish during the last twelve months. I encourage you to continue to pray and worship at Christ the King and Sacred Heart worship sites and urge you to find an opportunity in 2018 to offer your service to Christ the Redeemer Parish.

With prayers and New Year blessings,

Fr.Stan
