SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Jn 2, 1-11
There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there.
Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.
When the wine ran short,
the mother of Jesus said to him,
“They have no wine.”
And Jesus said to her,
“Woman, how does your concern affect me?
My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servers,
“Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings,
each holding twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus told them,
“Fill the jars with water.”
So they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them,
“Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.”
So they took it.
And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine,
without knowing where it came from
— although the servers who had drawn the water knew —,
the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him,
“Everyone serves good wine first,
and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee
and so revealed his glory,
and his disciples began to believe in him.

PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS

EPIPHANY OF THE LORD - JANUARY 6, 2019

Monday – St. Raymond of Penyafort

Everyone is invited to the Annual Christmas Concert this evening at 7PM in Sacred Heart Church. Admission if FREE.

The annual blessing of homes will continue this week. If you miss the priest’s visit and want to reschedule, please call the parish office. If you live outside of Manville you must call the parish office to schedule a time to bless your home.

As you may know, Bishop Checchio is dedicating the Diocese of Metuchen this year to Our Lady of Guadalupe. There is a prayer kit available for families to take home to pray to Our Lady for a period of time. Please call the parish office if you would like to participate.

Beginning today and up until the Parish Mission takes place in March, we will be reciting the Mission Prayer after the General Intercessions at every Mass. If you would like to take the prayer home to continue to pray for a successful Mission, feel free to do so. There are extra copies in the vestibule.

If anyone is interested in participating in our Video Reflections for the website, please call Deacon Bill or Deacon Tom. The next taping will be on January 16th.

There are calendars in the vestibule for our out of town parishioners or for anyone we might have inadvertently missed.

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

“Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.” (Luke 2,10-11)

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

On that first Christmas, the angels praised God, saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth to men of good will.” The shepherds came and adored the newborn Savior. St. Luke wrote, “And Mary treasured all of these things and reflected on them in her heart.”

We too need to pause and treasure the gift of Christmas in our hearts. And that gift is simply Jesus, true God who became true man, who came to reveal God’s love to us, who died and rose for our salvation, and who founded a Church – a family – where His presence continues in both Word and Sacrament.

As we begin to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Roman Catholic Parish Life in Manville we are encouraged to treasure and reflect on the gift of Jesus and the faith you share in Him as a member of the Catholic Church. May another 100 years be a story of great spiritual renewal that was brought to the people of Manville and surrounding neighborhoods through the Christ the Redeemer Parish.

May our Lord Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem, bless you, your families and loved ones at this blessed time of hope and grace. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year of 2018!

Sincerely yours,

Fr.Stan
