RESPECT LIFE CELEBRATION IN OUR PARISH
       In our parish we will celebrate a Respect Life Sunday with a celebration of Week of Prayer for Church Unity on this Sun. Jan. 23rd. At 5.00pm the Divine Liturgy in Ukrainian Bizantine Rite will be celebrated for the conversion of those who are against life. 
 
What is the Divine Liturgy?
       The Divine Liturgy is the highest act of worship by the Church, whereby the mystery of Christ becomes present among us, especially the Sacrifice of His human life on the Cross. The saving power (grace) from that act is made available to us.
       The "Divine Liturgy" it is an English translation of the Greek, "Thia Liturgia". Liturgy was the most important public act in the Ancient Greek world. We call the Liturgy Divine (or God's) because, through it, we partake of the Divine Nature; it is God's supreme act for humanity.
      A Living Rosary in different languages will be recited after the Mass. Please reserve this time. Pot luck Dinner after the Mass in the Parish Hall. After dinner we will show a short film called “The Silent Scream” about abortion.

Text Box: Sunday Scripture 

	The light of Christ guides us so we may keep our feet on the path of life. A compass in our cars can come in handy when we are lost. With Christ as the compass for our life's journey, we need not worry about which way we are to travel. No matter what direction we are coming from, we will arrive safely home to heaven if the Lord is our guide and companion.
	Today's first reading speaks of light coming to the people who have been in darkness. There will be rejoicing on that day. In the second reading, the faithful are urged to be unified in Christ, not letting human rivalries divide them. The Gospel tells of Jesus bringing the light of salvation to the world, fulfilling prophecies and calling his first Apostles.
