Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus says: “Come and you will See.” In today’s gospel, Jesus did not preach – he invited. Our
children need fewer words and more examples. They need to see our faith before they can follow
Jesus. What are you preaching by your example?
319 Holy Hours were kept before the Blessed Sacrament this past week. We
have three (3) new committed adorers: Samuel Kettchbaher, Catherine Coffman and
Bryan Schenkenberger. Thank you and may God bless you always! We are in need of
a partner for an adorer on Tuesday 6-7am and a partner for Friday 7-8pm. Please
consider committing to one of these hours, call 330-690-9661. Remember: we will
cover your hour anytime you are unable to do so.
