This Sunday on the liturgical calendar is known as Ecumenical Sunday. It reflects one of the very deepest desires of Jesus our Lord…that all of His followers be one. In our fractured Christian Church, still we are One in the Lord, one in our Baptism, and we are always called by Jesus to deepen our unity and love. Please note the practical way that our local ministerium, The Fergus Falls Shepherd’s Network, has chosen to express this in the coming week, with a 12:10 Prayer Service and free luncheon at a different Fergus Falls church each day of the week. The schedule is published elsewhere in this bulletin. May God abundantly bless this ecumenical endeavor!
This Tuesday, January 22 on the liturgical calendar is designated in the United States as Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. As is tradition, there will be a march and prayer service that day in St. Paul…with a bus leaving in the morning from Alexandria (check elsewhere in this bulletin for details). Here in our parish I encourage your special participation in the noon mass and adoration provided throughout the afternoon as we join in this special day of prayer.
The travelers to Peru are expected to return this coming Saturday, January 26. Let’s continue to keep them all in our prayers along with our brothers and sisters in Chimbote for a rewarding time and safe travels. May they suffer well the beautiful warm, sunny weather!
Mission Prayer—Join the Journey
March 10-13, 2019
God of love, source of mercy and
compassion, as we prepare for our
parish mission, weave your dream for the
world into the fabric of our lives. Remove
the scales from our eyes as you did for
St. Paul and lift the indifference from our
hearts. Transform our lives as you did for
St. Peter, so that we may accomplish your
purpose. Give us the urgency of Mary and
Joseph, and a new commitment to care for
those you place before us.
Open us again to your love, your grace,
and the call to service. We want to be
renewed as followers and disciples of
Jesus, Your Son!
