SECOND WEEK:  Two candles are lighted on the second Sunday by the oldest child and allowed to burn as before. The prayer for the second week is: Leader: Let us pray. O Lord, stir up our hearts that we may prepare for your only begotten Son, that through his coming we may be made worthy to serve you with pure souls. Through Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. All: Amen.

 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"John points to the coming of Christ and his Kingdom"

What kind of Messiah did God promise to send to his people and how would he bring God's kingdom to them? The prophet Isaiah foresaw the day when God would raise up a Messianic King long after King David's throne had been overthrown and vacant for centuries. God promised that he would raise up a new king from the stump of Jesse, the father of King David (Isaiah 11:1). This messianic king would rule forever because the Spirit of God would rest upon him and remain with him (Isaiah 11:2).



To St. Joseph’s Gym on Sunday, January 8, 2017, 6:20 p.m., immediately after the 5 p.m. mass. Because FAITH, our Greatest Gift from GOD, passes to our children through concrete experiences of Awe and Love.

PARENTS and GRANDPARENTS, What do you do? Hold back on a very prized gift from Christmas.  (Let children know God has prepared a special surprise for them and wants to give them a special present HIMSELF.)

GUIDE your children to write a letter to the Three Kings asking for this gift.  (It is best to have your letter in hand, but, if you don’t have time to write a letter, paper and pens will be provided in the gym.) Bring your letter to the Epiphany Pageant at St. Joseph Gym by 6:20 p.m. During the Pageant, your child will give his/her letter to the Kings, receive a blessing and a small gift.

At home, prior to leaving for Mass and the Pageant, place the desired gift under the tree or in a special place, to be found when you return home. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Joan Evonuk at 344-5232.
