(JANUARY 18 – 25)
       Every year we celebrate a Week of Prayer for the Unity of all followers of Jesus. The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity was initiated in 1908 by the Rev. Paul Wattson of the Episcopal Church in 1908 at Graymoor in New York’s Hudson Valley; the Second Vatican Council’s Decree on Ecumenism in 1964; and the formation of the Joint Working Group between the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity and the World Council of Churches. A world observance, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an important expression of ecumenical activity at the local level. This year the  theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is: “Where two or three are gathered in my name...” (Matthew 18:20). The features provided in this year’s resources thus intend to evoke a sustained reflection on Jesus’ invitation to gather in His Name and on the meaning such gatherings hold for the unity of the Church and the renewal of the human community.

Our Diocese currently has 20 seminarians preparing to serve our parishes as priests. Education and formation in the Seminary is costly ($27,000 per year) per seminarian. Our diocese conducts, once a year, a special collection to help to pay for these expenses. On this weekend; the January 17/18 weekend, we  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 for your generosity. MAY GOD REWARD Text Box: Sunday Scripture
         Each of us is called to bring all that we have to the work of building up God's Kingdom on earth.
When Jesus called the Apostles, he did not hold interviews or find the smartest and most distinguished people to help him with his mission. He picked everyday people, of whom he asked extraordinary things. We mirror the Apostles in that we are ordinary people being asked by God to do both ordinary and extraordinary things in Christ's name.
 In today's first reading we hear that Samuel, as a young boy, is called by God. He does not understand at first that it is God calling him. In the second reading, Paul reminds us that our bodies come from God, therefore they are holy temples where the Holy Spirit dwells. In the Gospel, Jesus calls the first Apostles.
