ANNUAL SEMINARY COLLECTION.
Our identity as Catholics began at the Sacrament of Baptism when we were incorporated into the Body of Christ. With our baptism comes our call, or vocation, through which the Holy Spirit assists us to know and do Godís will. All vocations are important and needed for a healthy and vibrant Catholic Church. January 9-15, 2011 is National Vocations Awareness Week - a perfect time to educate our children and young people about vocations. 
       Our Diocese currently has 28 seminarians preparing to serve our parishes as priests. One of them; Fr Deacon Rafal Duda will be ordained this year, May 14, and he will celebrate his FIRST HOLY MASS in our parish on May 15th, at 10.30am. Please pray for him and others, who will be ordained with him. 
       Education and formation in the Seminary is very costly ($ 34,995 per year per seminarian) x 28; total is $ 979,860.00 per year - nearly 1 million dollars. Our diocese conducts, once a year, a special collection to help to pay for these expenses. Today the January 15/16 weekend we will have a 2nd collection to support those called to serve us as future priests. 
       Write checks to: St. Margaret Mary Church with memo: for Oakland Seminary. Thank you very much. MAY GOD REWARD YOUR GENEROSITY. 
Text Box: Sunday Scripture 

	We are all called to be holy in the sight of God. Now that the Church's celebration of the Christmas season is finished, we focus on the public ministry of Jesus for the next few Sundays, until the beginning of Lent. Each of these readings explains to us what it means to be called a servant of God. We are also called to be a sanctified people, to be holy in the sight of God.
	In the first reading, we hear that God's servant will be a light to the nations so that salvation might come to all. In the second reading, the faithful are reminded that they have been sanctified by Christ and are to be holy. In the Gospel, John the Baptist proclaims that Jesus is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
Text Box: Last week, the second collection for the the Bishopís Appeal Fund amounted to $ 0.00. This week, the 2nd collection  is for Oakland Seminary Fund. Next week, the 2nd collection will be for the Parish Development Fund. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR PARISH. MAY GOD REWARD YOUR GENEROSITY. 
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL BENEFACTORS
