tif) The Baptism of the Lord With His baptism in the Jordan, Jesus begins his public ministry proclaiming the kingdom of God with the knowledge that He is the beloved son of God the Father. In this Year of Faith, we proclaim the kingdom of God when we live with the hope and confidence of knowing we are loved deeply as Gods daughters and sons and tell others why we hope. Living Faith in January: Luke 3:15-16, 21-22 The Lord will bless his people with his peace. (Ps 29) How do you direct the love of God to another person? How does the Baptism of the Lord make you think about your own baptism and what it means to be a member of the people of God or the Body of Christ? How do you work in the service of others?

320 Holy Hours were kept before the Blessed Sacrament this past week. Could you not watch one hour with me? The only time our Lord asked the Apostles for anything was the night when He went into His agony. But as often in the history of the church since that time, evil was awake, but the disciples were asleep. That is why there came out of His anguished and lonely Heart a sigh: Could you not watch one hour with Me? (Mt. 26:40) Not for an hour of activity did He plead, but for an hour of friendship (Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen) The Holy Hour program needs you....please call Judy Soltis at 330-212-0926 if you are able to watch!

Volunteers will be in the back of the church accepting signatures and donations for the unborn in a protest against legalized abortion. Your signature will be on a petition for life which will be sent to our legislators, and your donations will support pro-life multi-media education. If you prefer, envelopes are available in the pews for you to fill out and include your donation rather than signing the petition forms. Envelopes should be returned by placing them in the collections basket by January 27, 2013. Thank you for helping us Build a Culture of Life!

"Yea, Lord we Greet Thee..." What a wonderful Christmas season our Parish has had. After four weeks of preparing for the birth of our Lord, we have seen our church transformed. To everyone who helped in any of the Christmas celebrations, thank you. So much work is put into making St. Augustine a beautiful and wonderful place to worship during the Christmas season. We want to especially thank: those who clean our church weekly, helped decorate the altar and church for Christmas, and those involved in Liturgical Ministries, whether through song, lectoring, ushering, or being a Eucharistic Minister. The celebrations would never have been as beautiful as they were without you our many volunteers. Thank you and many Blessings! Why a Holy Hour? When our Lord sees pure souls coming to visit Him in the Blessed Sacrament He smiles on them. They come with the simplicity that pleases Him so much. (St. John Vianney)
