Pastor's Note

This Sunday we celebrate the Second Sunday of Ordinary Time. After the great season of Christmas, we return to a period of Ordinary time before we begin our Lenten journey. This period is important for us to catch our spiritual breath before another intense season of preparation begins. It is during the daily events of our lives that God works and helps us to grow.

Our Gospel this Sunday speaks to us about the mystery of the Wedding Feast of Cana, where Jesus took ordinary water and changed it into the best of all wine. Jesus takes the ordinary events and makes them holy, places where God can dwell and be found. Let us ask the Lord to open our eyes to recognize these moments in our daily lives.

This Wednesday evening our Second Grade students will meet the Lord Jesus for the first time in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Please keep them and their families in your prayers as they prepare for this very special day.
