On Saturday night, we began the Easter Vigil outside around the Easter fire that lit the Paschal candle.

Several scripture passages were read to help us meditate and reflect on God’s works since the beginning of time. Finally, our Candidates and Catechumens, who have come so far on their discernment journey, were fully received into the Catholic Faith. We welcomed 17 new parishioners! What a beautiful way to start the Easter season. See our photo album for more pictures.

January 13, 2019: The Baptism of The Lord
IS 42:1-4, 6-7 or IS 40:1-5, 9-11; PS 29:1-4, 9-10 or PS 104:1B-4, 24-25, 27-30; ACTS 10: 34-38 or TI 2:11-14; 3: 4-7; LK 3:15-16; 21-22
As we celebrate this feast of the Baptism of the Lord, we can study His actions at the Jordan River as a powerful example of servant leadership. We see in Jesus a type of leadership that is characterized by humility and leading by example.
Certainly the sinless Savior did not need a baptism of repentance! But Jesus humbly made Himself one with his people to draw us to Him and create a relationship with us so that we would be open to His teachings and influence.
As a servant leader, we also see that Jesus leads by example. He doesn’t just tell the people they need to be baptized. He shows them how and does it Himself to teach them. To lead like Jesus, we, too, must “walk the walk” and not just “talk the talk.” If we want those we lead to be generous and hard-working, then we must show them how to do this by demonstrating generosity and hard work ourselves.
Immediately after His baptism, we learn of the powerful affirmation of the Father who opens the heavens, sends the Holy Spirit upon Jesus in bodily form and says audibly, “This is my beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased.” Let us be filled with gratitude for our amazing God and be reminded that when we are grateful followers of Jesus and servant-leaders in imitation of Him, the Father will be well-pleased with us, too.
The All Saints Boy Scout Troop 2 Annual Toboggan Run has been postponed from Saturday, January 6th until Saturday, January 20th due to cold temperatures.

Our parish family lovingly encourages you to invite Our Lady of Fatima into your home. Through Our Lady’s intercession, many graces and blessings are given.
In 1946, Our Lady of Fatima was crowned Queen of the World. The next year, through her pilgrim statue, she set forth to claim her dominion. The favors she performs along the way are such that we can hardly believe what we are seeing with our own eyes. Pope Pius XII
Our Lady visits our homes on a weekly basis and is accompanied by a prayer and song book. Many people pray the rosary and other liturgical prayers with their immediate family members and host prayer groups with family and friends.
Have questions? Want to arrange a visit of Our Lady to your home?
Call Mike Stajduhar at 304-543-8816 or Barb Martin at 574-721-5420 to schedule a “pilgrimage” visit and reserve the Our Lady of Fatima statue for your home.
